Crohn's Disease

It is estimated that Crohn’s disease affects approximately 28,000 Aussies annually and is usually diagnosed between the ages of 15 to 30 (ACCA, 2007).  The disease commonly affects the end of the small intestine, but can affect any part of the digestive tract from the mouth to the anus.  Symptoms may include pain, diarrhoea, rectal bleeding, fatigue, weight loss, constipation, fever, perennial fissures and loss of appetite.  Generally it’s a pretty crappy situation.  Failure to thrive is common in children with Crohn’s disease.
