Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that may affect any segment of the gastrointestinal tract [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]. It causes swelling of the tissues (inflammation) in your digestive tract and can cause severe pain and other symptoms such as abdominal pain and diarrhea [1][9]. Treatment typically involves dietary changes and medications to help manage some symptoms [10].

Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes inflammation of the lining of your digestive tract, which can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition. The inflammation caused by Crohn's disease often spreads deep into the layers of affected bowel tissue.

Symptoms vary depending on the severity of inflammation and where it occurs. They may include: 
• Diarrhea 
• Abdominal pain and cramping 
• Blood in stool 
• Fatigue 
• Unexplained fever 
• Loss of appetite or unintended weight loss  
Treatment for Crohn’s Disease typically involves medications such as anti-inflammatory drugs or immunosuppressants to reduce inflammation in the intestines. In some cases surgery may be necessary to remove damaged portions of the intestine or repair fistulas (abnormal connections between organs). Diet modifications are also important for managing symptoms; a low-fiber diet may help reduce flare-ups while a high-fiber diet can help with constipation associated with Crohn’s Disease.
