Crohn's disease is very much akin to irrital bowel syndrome. It is very serious and can be fatal.

Crohn's disease is a disease of the large intestine. http://.digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddisease...

MD's say there is no cure for Crohn's disease. See the bottom of this page to see how someone cured it.

Are you sure you're not referring to Crohn's Disease? That is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes inflammation or ulceration of the digestive tract.

Crohn's Disease is not contagious. The medical community does not have a good handle on it. They treat it as a so-called auto-immune disorder. It is serious, they will definitely want to take a nutritional approach.

Chrons disease. It's an intestinal disease. It's not contagious. It can be serious if not dealt with properly. Usually through diet. I have a niece with this and she doesn't always follow the diet prescribed by her doctor. When she eats what she wants that's not on the diet she ends up in the hospital. She's been unable to finish college because of this. She's ended up having part of her intestine removed because of it too. I would advise my friend to do whatever the doctor tells them to do.

Crohn's disease: A chronic inflammatory disease, primarily involving the small and large intestine, but which can affect other parts of the digestive system as well. It is named for Burrill Crohn, the American gastroenterologist who first described the disease in 1932.

Crohn disease is usually diagnosed in persons in their teens or twenties, but can come to the fore at any point in life. It can be a chronic, recurrent condition or can cause minimal symptoms with or even without medical treatment.

In mild forms, Crohn disease causes small scattered shallow crater- like areas (erosions) called aphthous ulcers in the inner surface of the bowel. In more serious cases, deeper and larger ulcers can develop, causing scarring and stiffness and possibly narrowing of the bowel, sometimes leading to obstruction. Deep ulcers can puncture holes in the bowel wall, leading to infection in the abdominal cavity (peritonitis) and in adjacent organs.

Crohn disease comes in many forms. Involvement of the large intestine (colon) only is called Crohn colitis or granulomatous colitis, while involvement of the small intestine alone is called Crohn enteritis. The most common part of the small intestine to be affected by Crohn disease is the last portion, called the ileum. Active disease in this area is termed Crohn ileitis. When both the small intestine and the large intestine are involved, the condition is called Crohn enterocolitis (or ileocolitis). Other descriptive terms may be used as well.

Abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and weight loss are common symptoms. Crohn disease can be associated with reddish tender skin nodules, and inflammation of the joints, spine, eyes, and liver. Diagnosis is commonly made by x-ray or colonoscopy. Treatment includes medications that are anti-inflammatories, immune suppressors or antibiotics. Surgery can be necessary in severe cases.

Genetic factors contribute to the causation of Crohn disease. One of the genes has been shown to be on chromosome 14 in region 14q11-12.

Common Misspellings: crohn's diease, crohn's desease, crones disease, crones diease, crones desease, crons disease, crons diease, crons desease, chrons disease, chrons diease, chrons desease, crohns's disease, crohns's diease, crohns's desease, chrones disease, chrones diease, chrones desease, chrones disease, chrones diease, chrones desease, chron's disease, chron's diease, chron's desease, crohns disease, crohns diease, crohns desease

It is Crohn's disease. Uncontollable bowel movements. I guess they are not sure what causes it.

I think you mean Crohn's Disease. It's within a class of gastrointestinal diseases called Inflammatory Bowel DIseases (IBD) the other being Ulcerative COlitis. (These are not to be confused with IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome). Patients are usually younger women who present with diarrhea or abdominal pain among other things.
