FAQ's For Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is not necessarily life-threatening, and does not shorten the lifespan of the patient. However, complications stemming from long-term bowel issues can be fatal.

Crohn's disease does not shorten the lifespan of the patient.

Currently, there is no known cure for Crohn's disease. However medication, surgery and diet are the best ways to cope with the illness.

It is dangerous to leave Crohn's disease untreated, as it can cause severe imflammation leading to potentially fatal complications like fistula, fissures, ulcers and abcess.

Foods having high-fiber content, or are not easily digestible shpould be avoided. These include corn, whole grains, nuts, seeds, lentils, beans, caffeine and raw fruits and vegetables.

Crohn’s disease is a long-term inflammatory bowel condition wherein the intestines face injuries like fissures, ulcers and fistula. It is usually detected between the ages of 15 and 40. The exact cause of Crohn’s disease is unknown. Studies have shown that an initial bacterial or viral infection may trigger the process by activating the immune system. However even after the infection is cured, the body’s immune system continues its initial response and creates inflammation. The disease may have genetic links and increases the likelihood of passage from parent to child.

Conditions of Crohn’s disease are what cause patients most discomfort. The inflammation of the inner lining of the intestines can thicken or wear away periodically. Ulcers, cracks and fissures can form due to thickening of deeper layers of the intestine. Some more painful complications include abcess (a pocket of pus) and fistula (an abnormal connection of the intestines).

Crohn’s disease symptoms are chronic and lifelong in nature that may come and go. They include:
Loss of appetite
Abdominal pain at or below the navel, which worsens after meals
Mouth sores
Joint pain and back pain
Pain during bowel movements
Diarrhea that contains blood
Sores around the anus
Drainage of mucus or pus from the anus
Weight loss
Fever
Weakness or fatigue
Pain in one or both eyes or vision changes
Delayed puberty in children

How Crohn’s disease is diagnosed is dependant on the symptoms, profile of the patient and duration of experiencing symptoms. Even if the pattern fits, doctors may take months to ascertain that it is Crohn’s disease. Some methods of testing include:
Antibody tests
Stool tests
Blood tests
Colonoscopy
MR Enterography
Upper gastrointestinal series
Biopsy
Wireless capsule endoscopy

Treatment for Crohn’s disease involves an anti-inflammatory medication called aminosalicylate (such as mesalamine) administered orally or as an enema. Some antibiotics are effective in killing bacteria present in irritated areas of the bowels, and in reducing inflammation. Anti-diarrhoea drugs are also often prescribed as part of Crohn’s disease medication. Surgery is only recommended for patients having bowel obstruction, a non-healing fistula or persistent symptoms despite medical therapy.

The best diet for Crohn’s disease flare-ups would entail avoiding foods like:
Corn
Butter, margarine and oils
Mayonnaise
Raw fruits and vegetables
Alcoholic beverages
Deep-fried foods
Red meat
Nuts and seeds
Spicy foods
Whole grains and bran
Gas-inducing foods like lentils, legumes, cabbage, beans, broccoli and onions

Most patients maintain a low-residue diet which promotes the consumption of foods that leave less residue in the stool. This includes:
Well-cooked vegetables like beets, asparagus, carrots, green beans, pumpkin, mushroom and spinach
Well-ground, well-cooked, low-fiber meats like chicken, beef, lamb and shellfish in moderation
Refined flour options over whole grains
HerbsDaily offers a wide selection of supplements effective in combatting the symptoms of Crohn’s disease.
