Crohn's Disease

A severe condition in which the immune system attacks and destroys portions of your intestines, causing pain, diarrhoea, fevers, bleeding amongst the symptoms.  Unfortunately, the underlying reasons are far from clear.

What is this condition?

Crohn’s most often diagnosed in teens or young adults can affect people at any age.  Inflammation of the lining of the gut defines Chron’s disease, thought to be caused by an immune system malfunction.
