Crohn’s disease causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive tract, which causes diarrhea, abdominal pain, malnutrition, loss of weight and tiredness. This inflammatory disease can originate in several parts of the digestive tract in humans.
IRRITABLE BOWEL DISEASE – CROHN’S
In Crohn’s disease, the lining of the gastrointestinal walls becomes too porous and damaged, allowing semi-digested food particles and foreign molecules, such as proteins and toxins entry into surrounding membranes, into the blood and tissues. An alarm is triggered in response to these deviant substances; there is an invasion of microbes with bad intentions. The immune system naturally responds similarly with symptoms comparable to a bout of food poisoning.
