Treating Symptoms With Crohn' s Disease Medicine

Crohn' s disease is a chronic condition of the inner layer of the digestive tract, characterized by small areas of ulcers and inflammation and can be found anywhere from the mouth to the anus, most of them found in the small intestine. The entire area however, is not totally affected, as most often there is healthy tissue in between the inflamed and ulcerative places. Crohn' s disease can be extremely painful, but the symptoms can be treatable with medicine, lifestyle changes, diet alterations and surgery. Those experiencing symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, vomiting, and fatigue should consider consulting a physician for possible diagnosis and treatment.

Risks For Crohn' s Disease

While anyone can develop Crohn' s disease, there are some age and ethnic groups that are at higher risk; those between the ages of 15 and 40, young children and elderly adults and those of Jewish heritage. Those who smoke, those with a diet high in sugar and hydrogenated fat, and low in fruits and vegetables, and those with a family history of inflammatory bowel disease are also at higher risk for Crohn' s disease. It is a disease that affects people for most of or all of their lives, and often times requires surgery to remove the affected area of the digestive tract, but surgery has its risks and typically does not completely eradicate the disease. While surgery is a viable option in severe cases, there are other ways to cure the disease, such as pharmaceuticals, Crohn' s disease medicine, and alternative options for those who are opposed to invasive procedures or treatments that involve medication.

For those that choose to go the pharmaceutical route, there are several Crohn' s disease medicines that can help relieve some of the symptoms that come along with the bowel inflammatory disease. Crohn' s disease medicine helps to relieve symptoms, promote healing of damaged tissues, stop the disease from progressing, and can postpone the need for surgery if the medicine is administered early enough into the progression of the disease. There are several Crohn' s disease medicines that work, but the success of each medicine depends on the progression of the disease and how each patient reacts to the medication. Crohn' s disease medication typically begins with a mild treatment of aminosalicylates that help prevent inflammation. If symptoms continue with the aminosalicylates, corticosteroids will be added to increase the benefits. If the combination of the corticosteroids and aminosalicylates is still ineffective, doctors will likely treat with immunosupressants, and occasionally intravenous corticosteroids if the case is severe enough. If the progression of Crohn' s disease resists medicine, antibiotics can be used for Crohn' s disease complications such as arthritis and eye problems. It is best to attempt to treat Crohn' s disease long before other symptoms begin to appear, as the progression can be painful and difficult to treat.
