Crohn’s Disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that affects the lining of the digestive track. Crohn’s Disease affects around 780,000Americans. It is most found in teens and adults between the ages of 15-35. It affects both men and women but is more commonly found in women. It can sometimes cause life-threatening complications. It is not clear what causes Crohn’s Disease, but some factors that may influence whether you get it or not are your immune system, your genes, your environments.
Symptoms include but are not limited to abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, anemia, and fatigue. There are certain things that can affects the severity of your symptoms too.
These are whether you smoke, your age, whether the rectum is involved, and the length of time you have had the disease. Although it is incurable, treatments for Crohn’s commonly include antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin, amino salicylates (a type of anti-inflammatory drug), steroids, immune modifiers, or biologic therapies steroids and immunosuppressants. These are used to slow the progression of the disease.
If these are not effective, patients may require surgery. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the hemp plant known for its potential therapeutic effects.
