What to know about Crohn’s disease

Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). With Crohn’s disease, your body’s immune system doesn’t function properly, causing inflammation that can affect any part of your digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus. Most commonly, Crohn’s disease affects the intestines. Common symptoms include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Belly pain and cramps
  • Urgent bowel movements

The symptoms of Crohn’s disease can range from mild to severe. Because Crohn’s disease is a long-term illness, you will typically go through periods when you experience flare-ups. During a flare-up, your symptoms become more noticeable or intense. In between flare-ups, you may have periods of remission. Remission is when your symptoms get much better or even go away completely.

Fortunately, there is treatment for Crohn’s disease.

Daily challenges and the importance of remission

Living with Crohn’s disease, you know your disease can limit what you’re able to do. When symptoms aren’t well controlled, it’s hard to do things spur of the moment. Making plans is difficult because you never know when symptoms might pop up. Having to cancel plans at the last minute can add to your worry and stress.

Getting better means relief of symptom relief and maintaining remission. To manage symptoms and stay in remission, it’s important to take medicine over the long term.

Some patients may be given medicines called steroids to control their symptoms. But over time, steroids can cause side effects. Healthcare providers often look for ways to help patients maintain remission over the long term without relying on steroids.

Treatment for your Crohn’s disease should control your symptoms without your illness getting in the way of your lifestyle. But ongoing medical treatments given at an infusion center or doctor’s office can be tough to manage. There’s the need to travel back and forth to appointments, take time off from school or work, and fit ongoing treatments into your already busy schedule. Over time, these challenges can really add up.

That’s why it’s important to find a treatment that fits the way you live. ZYMFENTRA™ can help you stay in remission from the comfort of home, without infusion time getting in the way.
