Crohn’s dis­ease causes in­flam­ma­tion of the di­ges­tive sys­tem. Symp­toms vary but of­ten in­clude ab­dom­i­nal pain, di­ar­rhoea, fa­tigue, fever, weight loss and anaemia. The con­di­tion af­fects at least 115,000 peo­ple in the UK, but the ex­act cause re­mains un­known. Treat­ment can­not cure it, but aims to re­duce the symp­toms. Visit crohn­sand­col­i­tis.org.uk for more in­for­ma­tion.
