(HealthDay News) -- Crohn's disease causes inflammation in
portions of the digestive tract, which can trigger diarrhea,
abdominal pain and cramping.
The National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse says
potential ways to manage Crohn's include:
- Taking medication prescribed by your doctor.
- Having surgery to help alleviate symptoms, and sometimes to
remove a portion of the intestines.
- Following a healthy, well-balanced diet and avoiding foods that
may trigger symptoms.
- Avoiding smoking.
- Managing stress.
