|What Is Crohn’s?|
Currently affecting an estimated 500,000 people in the United States, Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory illness of the digestive tract which can also affect the liver, eyes, joints and skin. Growth failure and malnutrition is an important complication in children with CD. About a 1/4 of newly diagnosed CD occur in children and young adults under 18 years old. We don’t know what causes Crohn’s and continued research is needed to better understand the disease.
An “invisible disease”, most people with CD look like everyone else yet they may be suffering with severe abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea, intestinal bleeding, or required to take a handfuls of daily medications to keep the disease in remission. Increasing awareness of CD can help relieve the emotional hardship of managing a lifelong disease. Hope For Crohn’s is working to help find a cure.
