Crohn disease ( Having a 6 pack abs )


I was wondering if its possible to have abs or 6 packs with crohn disease.

I am in remission for the past 4 years but I still have a belly which I think is because of crohn since I eat really well.

If I do allot of cardio and doabs workout is it possible to see abs or because of crohn I will always have inflamed belly?

Thank you!

My kiddo was dx with crohns at 7 and now is 17
So belly fat is not an issue being a teenager
Tall and skinny

I would think 6-pack abs would have more to do with diet /exercise/genes then Crohn’s disease
