Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the digestive tract. Inflammation of the digestive tract may cause abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, weight loss, and fatigue.

Common signs and symptoms of Crohn’s disease include:

  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Blood in the stool
  • Decreased appetite
  • Abdominal pain
  • Cramping
  • Mouth sores
  • Weight loss

There is no known cure for Crohn’s disease. However, there are treatment options available that can reduce symptoms or even help patients achieve remission.
