Crones Disease

Were you looking for information about Crohn's Disease? Crones disease is a common misspelling of Crohn's disease.
Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes patches of inflammation in the digestive tract, often near the end of the small intestine in the colon. As a result, the intestines may empty more frequently, which can cause chronic diarrhea. Additional symptoms include abdominal pain, weight loss, and vomiting.
Although Crohn's disease can affect people of any age, it is usually diagnosed before the age of 30. There is no cure; however, symptoms can be reduced with medications, dietary changes, or surgery.
Because of problems absorbing certain nutrients or medications, people with Crohn's disease are more likely to develop osteoporosis. Also, some medications used to treat the condition may trigger bone loss.
