Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory condition that primarily affects the digestive tract, causing inflammation, ulcers, and damage to the gastrointestinal lining. It can result in symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and nutritional deficiencies. While the exact cause is unclear, it is thought to involve a combination of genetic predisposition, environmental factors, and an abnormal immune response. Treatment typically involves medications to reduce inflammation, manage symptoms, and prevent flare-ups, alongside dietary modifications and, in severe cases, surgery to remove damaged portions of the intestine.
