    Crohn's Disease Risk Assessment

    Crohn's disease is one of a group of diseases known as inflammatory bowel diseases. It is a chronic condition of your gastrointestinal (GI) tract: your esophagus, stomach, and gut. Over time, Crohn’s can damage parts of the GI tract.

    Lifestyle Management of Crohn’s Disease

    You can lead a full life even if you have Crohn’s disease. Focus on keeping your symptoms under control. Do not let this disease isolate you. By planning ahead and working with support groups, you can find ways to cope, and you may even help others who have Crohn’s disease.
