IVF clinical trials in Alabama
Do you know why we are conducting a clinical trial for Crohn’s disease? This medical condition affects hundreds of thousands here in the U.S. alone, and yet it remains widely misunderstood. We are conducting research on patients with Crohn’s disease because there is still no cure for this debilitating illness. Clinical trials provide a valuable alternative to people who have not found the results they’re looking for using contemporary medications like these.
This medical condition gets its name from the renowned Dr. Burrill B. Crohn. He and two colleagues (Dr. Gordon D. Oppenheimer and Dr. Leon Ginzburg) are credited for first describing the illness in 1932. Since then, Crohn’s disease has been classified into a group of conditions that we call inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).
Crohn’s Disease Fast Facts
- Half a million American men and women have been diagnosed with Crohn’s
- Inflammation is the root cause of Crohn’s disease symptoms
- Exact cause of this disease remains unclear
- Crohn’s patients must be wary of symptom flare-ups which can be very severe
Crohn’s disease is an incurable form of inflammatory bowel disease. After the symptoms have begun, it will cause parts of the digestive system to become inflamed, and some patients will experience ulcers as a result. In most cases, Crohn’s disease will affect the last portion of the small intestine and the first portion of the large intestine. However, it can manifest in any part of the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus.
Many people who’re living with Crohn’s disease adapt a daily strategy that involves sidestepping their symptoms. This type of tactic could involve:
- Actively avoiding specific public places
- Altering their overall diet
- Skipping entire meals
It’s understandable why this is a popular approach to take with a medical condition like this. Most people are quite unwilling to talk about living life with conditions like Crohn’s or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). While altering your diet is a smart move to make, we don’t recommend trying to sidestep these symptoms.
Crohn’s disease needs to be addressed directly, because this is the way that patients can take back control of their own lives. If you find yourself sidestepping your symptoms, it might be time to talk to your doctor about adjusting your overall treatment approach (there are a diverse variety of treatments and therapies available).
