      Both Crohn’s and Colitis conditions cause painful inflammation and ulceration of the digestive tract. Crohn’s inflammation can occur anywhere from the mouth to the anus, and Colitis is confined to the large bowel (colon) and rectum.

      The symptoms can be very isolating and debilitating for an IBD sufferer, and include painful abdominal cramping, weight loss, malnutrition, chronic diarrhoea, nausea and fatigue. Treatment can include long-term, strong medications and in some cases surgery. Sufferers can find that IBD and its associated symptoms has a great impact on their confidence and emotional outlook.

      If you have recently been diagnosed with the disease and would like to find out more or you are returning after a period of remission then share your experiences with us.

      Crohnszone is here to support one another, to offer hope and support.
