Hello -

How do you know if you have Crohn's disease vs. IBS? Crohn's disease causes inflammation and irritation of the digestive tract. This causes a thickening of the bowel walls, which can lead to bowel obstruction.

Crohn's may cause abdominal pain, appetite changes, anal fistulas, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, and rectal bleeding. Without proper diagnosis and treatment of the disease, Crohn's can lead to complications and increased risk of cancer. The disease can cause chronic malabsorption which may lead to nutritional deficiencies. While rare, Crohn's disease may result in toxic megacolon which will require aggressive treatment and surgical intervention. IBS may have some of the same symptoms as as Crohn's but it is unrelated.
