The autoimmune marker for Crohn's disease is Anti-flagellin antibody (CBir1).

People with Crohn's disease live on average of 75.5 years to 78.4 years of age.

Some people live 20 years to 40 years after diagnoses of Crohn's diseae although some may live shorter lives

The average life expectancy of females with Crohn's disease is 78.4 years and for males the average life expectancy with Crohn's disease is 75.5 years.

The people who get Crohn's disease are white people which have the highest risk of Crohn's disease and people of Eastern European Ashkenazi Jewish descent.

Crohn's disease is also increasing among black people that live in North America and the United Kingdom.

However anyone of any ethnic group can get Crohn's disease but some people are ore prone to Crohn's disease than others.

The cause of Crohn's disease is not really known although researchers believe that an autoimmune reaction may be one cause of Crohn's disease.

An autoimmune reaction happens when the body's immune system attacks healthy cells in the body.

Genetics may also play a role, since Crohn's disease can run in families.

Aspirin, ibuprofen, and certain antibiotics are a few of the medications that can trigger Crohn's flares.

(Antibiotics change the balance of bacteria in the intestines, which can activate diarrhea even in people who do not have Crohn's disease.

Intestinal endoscopies are the most accurate methods for diagnosing Crohn's disease and ruling out other possible conditions, such as ulcerative colitis, diverticular disease, or cancer.

Diet and stress may aggravate Crohn's disease, but do not cause the disease.

Recent research suggests that hereditary, genetic, and environmental factors contribute to Crohn's disease development.

Most people are diagnosed with Crohn's disease between the ages of 20 and 30, but Crohn's disease can develop at any time.

People may have had the disease for years before it is diagnosed, because the symptoms resemble other gastrointestinal conditions.

Crohn's disease is a chronic disease that causes inflammation in your digestive tract.

It can affect any part of your digestive tract, which runs from your mouth to your anus.

But it usually affects your small intestine and the beginning of your large intestine.

Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

The symptoms of Chron's disease are.

Diarrhea.
Fever.
Fatigue.
Abdominal pain and cramping.
Blood in your stool.
Mouth sores.
Reduced appetite and weight loss.
Pain or drainage near or around the anus due to inflammation from a tunnel into the skin (fistula)
