Inflammatory bowel disease, also known as IBD, is chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. There are two main types of IBD: ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Ulcerative colitis causes continuous inflammation and ulcers in the innermost lining of the colon and the rectum. Crohn's, on the other hand, is non-continuous inflammation that affects all layers of the digestive system in the large and small intestines. Both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's cause diarrhea, pain, ...Read more

Is it possible to have IBS and Crohn's at the same time?

Is it possible to have IBS and Crohn's at the same time?

Yes!: Many patients with crohn's disease also suffer from ibs. No one really understands why this is. An ibs diagnosis is only made in my opinion if your get a full colonoscopy an upper endoscopy and the pathology results are normal. This would indicate that your crohns is in remission and cannot be blamed for ongoing intestinal symptoms. Hope this helps. ...Read more

If you have lower lobe pneumonia apendicitos and e coli all at the same time and it caused abdominal pain could you be misdiagnosed with crohns?

If you have lower lobe pneumonia apendicitos and e coli all at the same time and it caused abdominal pain could you be misdiagnosed with crohns?

Abdominal pain: The diagnosis of crohn's disease can only be made with biopsy results or certain glaring findings on an x-ray or certain very high blood test results - or a combination of all three while the things you listed can cause pain, mistaking them all for crohn's disease does not make a lot of sense. ...Read more

I have Crohn's disease and everytime I drink coffee, I must use the bathroom many times after. Any reasons why?

I have Crohn's disease and everytime I drink coffee, I must use the bathroom many times after. Any reasons why?

Common symptoms: Coffee and caffeine often increase intestinal motility and thus trigger bowel movements. (One of my patients called coffee her "colonic tonic".) With Crohn's disease, you may be extra sensitive to this normal effect. You may need to stop drinking coffee or reduce the amount. Best to discuss with the doctor who cares for your Crohn's disease. Good luck. ...Read more

Below i've linked a web page with many tables that compare the differences between the two. ...Read more

Hypothyroidism (Definition)

The thyroid gland is an endocrine organ located in the front part of the neck. Its role is to make thyroid hormones, which control the way cells use energy. Hyperthyroidism results when the thyroid gland is overactive and too much thyroid hormone is produced, which speeds up metabolism. This results in weight loss, a quick heartbeat, sweating, nervousness, ...Read more
