Crohn’s disease is a life-long disease which has no specific treatment. Some medications like NSAIDs may be prescribed to control inflammation and thus provide symptomatic relief. Nutritional supplements are essential in a patient with crohn’s disease to prevent any malnutrition and weight loss. Surgery may be considered in occasional individuals who have persistent symptoms which are not relieved by medications. The surgical procedure includes removing a part of affected intestines and then suturing the cut ends together. This surgical may lead to improvement in some individuals. Moreover, intestinal obstruction in children may also need surgical intervention. The disease, unfortunately cannot be eliminated permanently. It has high chances of relapsing again, even after long periods of remission.
