Crohn's disease directory

Crohn's disease is a long-term 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. Follow the links below to find BootsWebMD's comprehensive coverage about how Crohn's disease develops, its symptoms, how it’s treated, and much more.
