What is Crohn’s Disease?
Crohn’s is part of a group of conditions known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, shortened by using the initials IBD. The part of the body affected is the digestive tract, where we digest our food.
Crohn’s most commonly affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, anywhere from the mouth to the anus.
This GI inflammation causes parts of the intestines to become red and swollen. The inflammation typically extends into the lining of the affected organs. Sometimes sores and even ulcers occur in the walls of the intestine.
Over time the chronic inflammation will result in digestive symptoms.
What are the symptoms of Crohn’s?
- abdominal pain
- rectal bleeding
- persistent diarrhea (loose, watery, or frequent bowel movements)
- weight Loss
How can you find out if you have Crohn’s?
Because Crohn’s disease is marked by an abnormal response in the body’s immune system it can be detected with an at home stool test. We advise clients to use Genova Labs 2.0.
Genova’s easy to use, at home stool test employs markers that tell the difference between IBD (Crohns and Ulcerative Colitis) and IBS (irritable Bowel Disease). If the test shows positive for IBD, further evaluation with a physician is appropriate.
