Pathophysiology of Crohn's DiseaseCrohn's disease can occur in any part of the intestinal tract, but is most common in the terminal ileum. ( small intestine & colon ) Causes inflammation of the lining of your digestive tract which can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss & malnutrition. Often spreads into the deep layers of the affected bowel tissue. Very painful and debilitating, sometimes life threating complications. There is NO known cure. Therapies can reduce it's signs and symptoms, even bring about long term remission.
