What is Crohn’s Disease?

Crohn’s disease is a condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system. It most commonly occurs either in the colon or the ileum, which is the last section of the small intestine, although it can affect anywhere along the digestive tract. 

Crohn’s is a long-term condition, which 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 a longer period of suffering than is necessary, you may be entitled to compensation. 

What are the causes of Crohn’s disease?

There is no known cause of Crohn’s disease but certain factors are believed to contribute to it. These factors 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 western countries, such as the UK, than in poorer parts of the world) 

What treatment is available for Crohn’s disease?

There is no known cure for Crohn’s disease at present, but treatment is administered in an attempt 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, correctly diagnose the condition, 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.
