Crohn's Disease

Updated: Mar 11, 2020

Crohn's Disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that mostly commonly affects the small intestine but can affect almost any part of the GI tract from the mouth to the anus. These patients suffer from chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain and sometimes rectal bleeding. The diagnosis is traditionally made via colonoscopy. A new stool test called a fecal calprotectin can also help monitor disease activity.
