Crohn’s disease and its symptoms – things to remember

Written by Michelle ChongMichelle Chong- (BrownHr001)

An auto immune disease that triggers severe inflammation, Crohn’s disease mostly affects the last segment small intestine. However, in certain cases it is confined to colon alone. Precisely put, Crohn’s disease can affect the last part of the small intestine and colon, but varies with patients and disease condition. Both minor and severe symptoms can be detected in Crohn’s disease patients, but they do not follow a continual pattern often, instead flare-up and subside intermittently with absolutely no warning at all. Having phases of no symptoms can misguide both physicians and patients on the actual disease condition, but, the discovery of differential diagnosis methods can easily help diagnose the exact disease condition and the amount of treatment therapies that have to be administered to curb the symptoms and thus promise long term relief from Crohn’s disease. Achieving long term remission is the major goal of Crohn’s disease treatments. But the choice of therapy is guided by the symptoms that are detected based on differential diagnosis. Active phases of the disease can trigger the following symptoms in Crohn’s disease patients:

Diarrhoea – Diarrhoea is a commonly found symptom among Crohn’s disease patients. It is often accompanied by intense and excruciatingly painful abdominal pains and cramps

Low grade fever and fatigue are diagnosed in Crohn’s disease patients, mainly due to intense inflammation and infections. Tiredness and low energy are the other symptoms that are usually found.

Stomach pains and cramps are common among Crohn’s disease patients. Inflammation and ulceration caused by Crohn’s disease can lead to abdominal pain and cramping, ranging from minimal discomfort to very severe pain, followed by nausea and vomiting.

Lack of appetite as well as sudden and unhealthy weight loss, resulting from abdominal pain, cramping and inflammations can gradually deteriorate the health condition of Crohn’s disease patients. It can also affect the ability to digest and absorb food.
