What’s the problem?
The symptoms of Crohn’s disease vary significantly between patients. Patients with mild or no symptoms may not need any treatment, and individuals whose disease is in remission also may not require treatment.
There is no medication that can cure Crohn’s disease. Patients will typically experience periods of relapse followed by periods of remission lasting months to years. During relapses, symptoms of abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding worsen. During remissions, these symptoms improve. Remissions usually occur because of treatment with medications or surgery, but occasionally occur spontaneously without any treatment.
Since there is no cure for Crohn’s, the goals of treatment are to 1) induce remissions, 2) maintain remissions, 3) minimize side effects of treatments, and 4) improve the quality of life. Medications for treating the disease include anti-inflammatory agents, corticosteroids, topical antibiotics, & immuno-modulators.
