New Treatment Could Ease Bowel Pains from Crohns and Colitis
People who suffer from Crohn’s disease or colitis might have some relief soon according to two new findings. Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that afflicts any part of the gastrointestinal tract, which extends from the mouth to the anus. Symptoms generally include diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting and in some cases, anemia, skin rashes and tiredness. Colitis is a condition that involves inflammation of the colon with symptoms ranging from diarrhea and cramping to fatigue and a loss of appetite. Both of these conditions can be difficult to deal with. However, according to new clinical trials headed by a team of researchers, a new treatment option might soon be available to alleviate the conditions.
