What’s the problem?
Common symptoms of Crohn’s disease include abdominal pain, diarrhea, and weight loss. Less common symptoms include poor appetite, fever, night sweats, rectal pain, and rectal bleeding. The symptoms of Crohn’s disease are dependent on the location, the extent, and the severity of the inflammation.
Crohn’s Disease Diagnosis
The diagnosis of Crohn’s disease is suspected in patients with fever, abdominal pain and tenderness, diarrhea without or without bleeding, and anal disease. Laboratory blood tests may show elevated blood cell counts and sedimentation rates, both of which suggest infection or inflammation. Other blood tests may show low red blood cell counts (anemia), low blood proteins, and low body minerals, reflecting loss of these elements due to chronic diarrhea.
