Crohn’s disease is a disease that causes inflammation (swelling), and irritation of some parts of the digestive system.

The small intestines are commonly targeted by the disease. Small Intestines - Crohn's disease The small intestine is a key part of the digestive cycle, as it is where the majority of food digestion and the absorption of nutrients takes place. The process begins in your mouth, with the chewing of food to break it down and the addition of saliva to help the food travel down through your body. The small intestine is a key part of the digestive cycle, as it is where the majority of food digestion and the absorption of nutrients takes place. The Ileum absorbs the bile acids, which are sent back to the gallbladder to be used once again. The Ileum also absorbs vitamin B12 which is used to make more nerve and red blood cells. Reduce stress and bloatation on the digestive system by having small, frequent meals. It is better to eat 5-6 small meals in a day than 2-3 large meals. Avoid stimulants like tobacco and caffeine, exercise regularly and get sufficient sleep to maintain health. STOP being stressed because stress can worsen the symptoms of Crohn’s disease. Eliminate wheat and dairy products from your diet. This will prevent indigestion and bloating. You should have a low fibre diet because high fibre diets may irritate inflamed intestinal walls. Crohn’s disease is a disease that causes inflammation and irritation of any part of the digestive tract. The small intestines are most commonly affected by the disease How can crohns disease be prevented How does Crohns disease affect the small intestines? How do the small intestines work normally in the body In the 1st part of the small intestines the contents are mixed in enzymes from the pancreas and bile from the Gall Bladder which helps to break down the food even more. Then sent to the second part of the small intestines, the Jejunum. In the Jejunum the walls absorb all of the nutrients from the digested food that the body needs. The contents are finally moved into the third section, the Ileum. The broken down food is then sent to the rectum to be dispersed. When Crohns diseases first starts small ulcerations emerge on the surface of the bowels and the small intestines. The small intestines become narrow because of the disease and the contents (food) will not be able to pass. Without the small intestines working normally you'll get abdominal cramps, nausia and vomiting. Deep ulcers puncture holes in the walls of the intestines creating a tunnel to nearby organs resulting in the build up of pus. High fevers may occur. Over time the ulcers become deeper and larger and in some cases puncture the walls of the small intestines and bowels allowing bacteria to spread.
