What is Crohn’s disease?
It is a long-term health condition that affects any part of the digestive system, but usually a thin or large intestine.
The red lining will ignite, causing symptoms that may include diarrhea, abdominal pain, and blood and mucus in your heart.
Doctors do not know what causes it – the illness can flare up after long periods of remission.
There is currently no cure, but treatments such as steroids can help relieve inflammation.
It is thought to 115,000 people in the UK to have Crohn’s.
