Most commonly, Crohn’s disease occurs in the small intestine and colon. It’s possible that the disease can affect any party of your gastrointestinal tract from your moth to your anus. The condition is mild in some and can be life-threatening to others, especially due to later complications.
Symptoms of Crohn’s disease vary from mild to severe and usually develop gradually.
When this condition is active, the symptoms can include:
- Abdominal pain and cramping
- Mouth sores
- Perianal disease
- Reduced appetite
- Weight loss
- Blood in your stool
Research has not showed any exact cause of Crohn’s disease. But they have found contributing factors that may influence the symptoms of this condition such as whether you smoke, your age, and your stress levels. It’s also found that the quality of your immune system plays a role as well as your genetics and if someone in your family has ever contracted the disease.
There is no current cure for Crohn’s disease, although, there are several medications that are available to reduce symptoms. Here at Stem Cell International, we prefer to use more advanced solutions that use our body’s natural healing power.
