What is Crohn’s Disease?


(music) The way I explain
Crohn’s disease to children is their immune system is
overstimulated and it seems to be attacking their own
intestine. So you develop an inflamatory response that gives
symptoms and those symptoms are typically why the child is
coming in for evaluation, be it pain, or bleeding, or abnormal
stooling, or poor growth. What people need to realize is that
this disease is not going away right now. We don’t understand
why it happens, specifically. We don’t have all the answers to
how we can make it better. And we don’t have the answers as to
what the cure might be. Well, there’s a lot of really smart
people that are out there doing a lot of research. Our goal is
that these children have a normal life living with a
chronic disease.
