Crohn's Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that can develop anywhere
in the GI tract, from the mouth to the anus, but is usually found in the
last part of the small intestine (ileum) and the first part of the large
intestine (colon). The cause of Crohn's disease is not known. It causes
swelling and ulcers in the digestive system, which causes symptoms of
abdominal pain, weight loss, and diarrhea (sometimes blood). Tests can
be done by your doctor to diagnose Crohn's disease. This is a serious
disease which should be treated by a specialist, most often a gastroenterologist.
