Crones Diease

Were you looking for information about Crohn's Disease? Crones diease is a common misspelling of Crohn's disease.
Crohn's disease, also known as ileitis or enteritis, is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that causes patches of inflammation along the digestive tract -- most commonly near the end of the small intestine and in the colon. The inflammation frequently affects more than one layer of the wall of the digestive tract and can cause the intestines to empty more frequently, resulting in diarrhea.
While Crohn's disease can affect people of all ages, it is usually diagnosed before the age of 30. It cannot be cured in most people, so it usually requires lifelong treatment. Ways to manage the condition typically include medications, lifestyle changes, and, in extreme cases, surgery.
