    Has anyone done therapy for their Crohn's? I have been thinking about going and having someone to talk to about the ups and downs of this disease. Just wondering if it has helped or a waste of time?

    Losing weight

    I have active Crohn's, but I am not sure if I am in "full flare". I guess my question is; if you have any active Crohn's, do you actually start to lose weight?

    So, both of my maternal grandparents, aunt, and myself have dx of Crohn's. Now, my mom is thinking she has Crohn's. She's heading to the doctor as I type this. My great-aunt also had colon cancer. I just find it interesting of how many of my family members have this "wonderful" disease.

    Getting sick. Not w/Crohn's.

    I have been sick for the last week or so with no sign of getting better. I am worried bronchitis or pneumonia and with having Crohn's; I know my body isn't able to fight as well. Is it normal to get either one? I haven't been sick like this ever, and I am not sure what to do. :sign0085:
