About Crohn’s Disease:
Crohn’s disease is associated with ulcers and fistulae and is an inflammatory bowel disease of the intestines. Specifically, the colon and ileum are attacked most commonly. However, Crohn’s disease can be found in any part of the gastrointestinal tract and can affect the eyes, skin or joints.
Signs & Symptoms:
Symptoms of Crohn’s disease include chronic diarrhea, weight loss, fever, abdominal pain and tenderness, feeling of fullness in the abdomen, and/or rectal bleeding.
In order to better handle Crohn’s disease it’s important to identify certain triggers or foods that make your symptoms worse. Avoiding these foods can help to prevent a sudden Crohn’s attack. In addition, foods high in fiber should be carefully monitored as these foods can also make symptoms worse. Consuming bland foods is always helpful for Crohn’s patients, as well as avoiding gassy and spicy foods.
