Genetics and Crohn’s Disease 

 Some say that there is no known causes of Intestinal Bowel diseases or Crohns.  Without any doubt, many different things interacting.

The Simplest, Most Technical Description of Crohns Disease

People with Crohns have an immune system that may mistake the good microbes for the bad ones and attack everything in site.  this taxes the immune system,, and also the "battle" causes inflammation.

The Immune system become hyperactive, and does not stop working.

Genetic evidence of genes affecting Crohn’s disease

There is very strong evidence now that it can be said that certain locations on genes that are different attributes to the possibility of having Crohns.  Researchers in France and America have identified a place on a gene that leads to the wrong reaction of the immune system to microbes.

Intestinal Bacteria

The intestine is full of Bacteria. Many of them are good microbes that help us in many ways.  Probiotics are the big thing now.  Taking additional good microbes to help out compete the bad ones, and build up a healthy population of good bacteria.

How do Doctors Treat Crohns Disease?

Much of the treatment philosophy is centered in treating the body's immune defense system. Some try to mask symptoms.  Some use an approach combining these with managing stress, diet, and lifestyle.  This is the best method. 

Crohns is a Developed World, Urban Disease

 Statistics show that Crohns Disease is more prevalent in the developed countries and more prevalent in urban areas.  This may be to diet and food intake.  There are also different classifications of Crohns, depending on where the symptoms are occurring.

Types and Locations of Crohns Disease anatomically

Illeocolitis = Most Common, in the first part of the small intestine and the large colon.

Illetis = Affects the Ileum also, lower and may lead to fistulas.

Gastroduodenal Crohns Disease = The stomach and small intestines.

Jejunoileitis = Patches of inflammation ion the Jejunum which is part of the upper intestine.

Crohns Granuloomatous colitis =  Only present in the large intestine.

 

Foreign Substances and Genetics =Cause Crohns Disease.
