Crohns Disease
 
Standard Definition

Crohns disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that affects the final part of the small intestine and the beginning section of the colon. It causes malabsorption problems and distressing symptoms.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Crohns disease has been commonly linked to intestinal infections – identification of these organisms can result in effective treatment. Crohn’s disease leads to malabsorption and deficiencies in various nutrients, particularly zinc, folic acid, iron, vitamin B12, vitamin D and A. These nutrients are essential for the health and healing of the intestinal walls and deficiencies can cause bone disease, kidney and gallstones. Inflammation within the gut can contribute to inflammation within the body such as arthritis, hepatitis and skin disease.
