Crohn’s disease

A disease that causes inflammation (redness and swelling) of the lining of the digestive tract (the part of the body that food travels through). This can lead to pain in the belly and below the belly, severe diarrhea (frequent, loose bowel movements), tiredness, weight loss, and malnutrition (the body not getting what it needs from food)
