Chrones Disease Symptoms

The diagnosis of Chrones Disease is often really difficult, the disease can occur at any age but it does seem as though that adolescence and early adulthood are the times of the highest risk.

Because current research says that the only way of getting Chrones disease is genetic, the only known risks seem to be through a family history of Chrones disease.

It also seems that people who have Jewish ancestry, and smoking also seems to increase the risk of Chrones.

Chrones disease is more common than most people thing as there are about 7 people in every 100,000 who have the disease.

Here are the main Symptoms of Chrones Disease:

* Unintentional weight loss
* Abdominal mass
* Abdominal sounds - gurgling or splashing sounds
* Fatigue and tiredness
* Tenesmus which means pain with passing stool
* Fever
* Diarrhea
* Loss of appetite
* Gastrointestinal bleeding
* Stools that are Foul-smelling
* Pain in your Abdomen

Here are also some less common Symptoms of Chrones disease:

* Anal Incontinence
* Swollen gums
