A Brief Overview Of Crohn's DiseaseWritten by Kirsten Whittaker
Crohnís Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation in digestive tract - from mouth all way through to anus. As a disease, it can be difficult to diagnose due to its similarity to other inflammatory disorders such as ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome. Crohnís Disease usually causes inflammation in lower small intestine, known as ileum. The inflammation goes deep into wall of intestine causing pain and diarrhea.
It is not known what causes Crohnís disease, although it is thought that it may be heredity in nature or result of a virus or bacterium invading body. To date no definitive answer has been provided. It effects both males and females and people suffering with this disease also tend to have immune system abnormalities, although whether this is a cause or a result of disease is unknown. One thing that has been established is that Crohnís Disease is not caused by stress, although emotional distress can exacerbate symptoms.
Symptoms most commonly experienced by sufferers are severe abdominal pain, accompanied by diarrhea. Some also report bleeding from rectum, weight loss and fevers. Children who suffer with Crohnís may experience some developmental and growth delays due to lack of essential vitamins and minerals absorbed into body.
