Croans Disease

Were you looking for information about Crohn's Disease? Croans disease is a common misspelling of Crohn's disease.
 
Crohn's disease, also known as ileitis or enteritis, is a type of inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD. The disease is characterized by patches of inflammation in the digestive tract. This inflammation causes the intestines to empty more frequently, resulting in diarrhea. Abdominal pain (stomach pain) is another common symptom of Crohn's disease.
 
The condition can occur anywhere along the digestive tract, but is most commonly found near the end of the small intestine and/or colon. Crohn's disease affects men and women equally and seems to run in some families. It cannot be cured in most people, so it usually requires lifelong treatment. A few things that can help alleviate symptoms include medications, dietary changes, and surgery.
