Crohn’s disease

Crohn’s disease is an IBD that can appear anywhere in the digestive tract, but most commonly affects the lower part of the small intestine. It can attack tissues all the way through the intestinal wall, but it’s not necessarily consistent—it sometimes skips areas, switching back and forth between areas of normal and inflamed bowel. It is not known what causes Crohn’s disease, although managing your diet and stress levels could help alleviate some of your Crohn’s symptoms. It tends to run in families, and up to 20% of patients with Crohn’s disease have a close family member who also has it.
