7 Reasons Why Your Crohn's Treatment Isn't Working
Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting your gastrointestinal tract—with an emphasis on chronic. Crohn’s can be a hard condition to treat, and even if you do find something that works, it might not last as long as you’d like. Watch out for these signs that your treatment is not doing the trick. A trip to the doctor might be the right next step.
1. Your symptoms never fully went away the first time.
If you’re still experiencing some of the following common signs and symptoms of Crohn's disease, your treatment may need a tweak, or you may need a new approach altogether. Talk to your gastroenterologist if any of these symptoms are a problem for you:
Cramping and pain
Swelling of the abdomen
Nausea or loss of appetite
Anemia (fewer red blood cells than normal)
