Chron’s & Colitis Awareness Week
Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that inflames the digestive tract and leads to abdominal pain, weight loss, and malnutrition. Ulcerative Colitis is also an inflammatory bowel disease but it causes inflammation and ulcers in the digestive tract.
While many individuals have heard of Crohn’s and colitis, many do not fully understand these diseases. Every year Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness Week is recognized to shine a light on the challenges faced by people who suffer from these illnesses.
