Having a close friend aged a mere 16 years, I am concerned with the understanding and the treatment of Crohn's disease. Is it an autoimmune disease with a genetic component? What is the best in treatment methodology? Will there ever be a cure?

Crohn’s Disease Guide: Articles, Info & Tips

Crohn’s disease (CD) is a disease of the gastrointestinal system that may first appear in young adults, and which may possess a genetic component. Frequently targeting the bowel, especially the small intestine, Crohn’s disease is as yet incurable. Medications and surgery, in that order, may be suggested as treatment, though there are also other, natural techniques that are employed to reduce the effects of the condition. Affecting some half-a-million persons, Crohn’s presents a sizable problem to the community. Be sure to read the articles of informed Bright Hub contributors to learn of information and tips you—or someone you love—can apply.
