Chrones Disease

Were you looking for information about Crohn's Disease? Chrones disease is a common misspelling of Crohn's disease.
 
Crohn's disease is characterized by inflammation of the digestive tract. This causes the intestines to empty more frequently, resulting in diarrhea. The condition can occur anywhere along the digestive tract, from the inside of the mouth to the anus, but it is most commonly found near the end of the small intestine and/or colon.
 
The exact cause of Crohn's disease is not known. Some possible causes include genetic problems, certain types of infections, problems with the immune system, and the environment. Stress, anxiety, or the foods you eat do not appear to cause it.
 
Diarrhea and abdominal pain are common symptoms. Rectal bleeding, weight loss, and fever are examples of other symptoms of Crohn's disease. In addition, a variety of potential complications are associated with the condition, such as intestinal blockages, nutritional deficiencies, and arthritis.
 
Although there is no cure for Crohn's disease, symptoms can be managed by taking medications, making changes to your diet, or undergoing surgery.
