Crohn's Disease
Crohn's Disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the ileum (the lower part of the small intestine) and may involve the colon and other parts of the digestive tract. Symptoms include abdominal pain, often following a meal, and diarrhea. Loss of appetite, weight loss, fever and joint pain are also common. Patients may have fissures (cracks) or sores around the anal area, fistulas (abnormal openings from the bowel to the skin) or abscesses. Diagnosis of this disease may require lab tests, x-rays or procedures such as Colonoscopy.
