    Crohn's disease is an autoimmune condition.
    There is currently no ‘cure’ for this disease.
    The relevant health professionals in your team, including your GP, your gastroenterologist and a dietitian can help you to manage the onset of symptoms and the severity of each recurrence. It is important that you seek the advice of a dietitian who specialises in Gastrointestinal disorders to help you.
    Therefore surgery will not fix this disease and is used only as a last resort when the affected tissues pose a further risk to your health.
