Is it possible to have Crohns disease without diarrhea and weight loss? Could someone with Crohns present with constipation and IBS-like symptoms?

In brief: Absolutely, yet be

careful to not just to labels (diagnoses) which are not correct & potentially misleading/harmful; a common issue.
Crohns is an autoimmune disease, i.e. the individual is attacking their body via their immune system. As integrated Soul?Mind?Brain?Body creatures, consider all the potential implications & possible approaches, not just incomplete body mechanic ideas/issues; usual medical approach.
