Treatment of Crohn's Disease

Crohn's Disease
Widespread, diffuse disease of the colon results in typical features of inflammation including fever, malaise, and loss of appetite. Since the colon absorbs excess water from food matter, impairment of this process can cause diarrhea. Mucosal ulcerations seen in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis can bleed and can be a cause of chronic anemia. When gut inflammation is particularly aggressive, the disease process can become toxic with impairment of the muscular function of the colon
