“I always have diarrhoea.” “After each meal I have painful abdominal discomfort.” “I sometimes have blood in my stools.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their suffering from Crohn’s disease.
A person who has Crohn’s disease, whose evacuations can be up to 20 times a day, is afflicted not only by the diarrhoea. Fever, loss of appetite and loss of weight, nausea and vomiting can go along with it. In this disease, certain parts of the bowel become inflamed, but not the entire bowel. The lower part of the small intestine as well as the colon are the areas most affected.
It makes no difference whether it is triggered by an autoimmune reaction against the cells of intestinal mucosa, the failure of the inherent defence against enterobacteria or an inflammation caused by specific viruses and bacteria.
