About Crohn's Disease Misdiagnosis Claims

Crohn's disease is a condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system. It most commonly occurs in either the colon or the ileum, which is the last section of the small intestine, although it can affect anywhere along the digestive tract. It is a long-term condition that can have various unwelcome symptoms, including:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhoea
  • Fatigue
  • Unintended weight loss

If a medical professional fails to identify the disease and this leads to your further suffering, you may be entitled to compensation. This financial help can prove invaluable.

Causes

There is no known cause of Crohn's disease, yet certain factors that are believed to contribute to it. These factors can include:

  • Problems with your immune system
  • Genes inherited from your parents
  • An abnormal response to a previous infection
  • Smoking (can make symptoms more severe)
  • Where you live (it is more common in westernised countries, such as the UK, than in poorer parts of the world, such as Africa)

Treatment

There is no known cure for Crohn's disease at present, but treatment is administered in an effort to relieve symptoms. It can also help to prevent the inflammatory process and can, where possible, prevent a sufferer from having to undergo surgery.

Treatment can take various forms and can include:

  • Steroid medication (these are called corticosteroids)
  • Immunosuppressants to suppress the immune system
  • Inflammation-reducing medication
  • Removal of the inflamed section of the intestine through surgery

A medical professional should be able to spot the symptoms and correctly diagnose Crohn's disease, and should be able to recommend and administer the correct treatment. If this has not happened and it has led to your further suffering, you may be in a position to make a claim for compensation.
