Crohn's disease directory

Crohn's disease is a chronic digestive disorder that is characterised by inflammation in the colon, rectum, small intestine, and occasionally even the stomach, mouth and oesophagus. It is similar in symptoms to ulcerative colitis, but affects more areas of the digestive system. Symptoms of the inflammation associated with Crohn's disease can range from fever, weight loss and abdominal pain to diarrhoea and rectal bleeding. According to the NHS, at least 115,000 people in the UK have Crohn's disease.
