We haven’t been given a word count but roughly about 1 thousand and more worlds . And it’s about 60% of the mark I think, I’m not entirely too sure. It’s due in this Thursday.

what reading have you done so far? Have you found at least two good websites on crohn's? How will you structure your essay to address those questions; or will you write 200 words per question and not have an introduction/conclusion?

Yeah if so do you know what the most common treatment or most effective treatment used for Crohn’s disease is? And how is your absorption of food affected by Crohn’s disease?

My absorption of food is affected greatly when I have a flare up. I often have many nutrient deficiencies, like vitamin A, C, B12 and iron deficiencies because I can’t absorb them as my intestines are so inflamed.

People with Crohn’s go through many medications and there are different ones for different severities of the disease. Each person with the disease works better on different medications, it’s very individual. Common medications that I’ve been on include azathioprine, methotrexate, infliximab, steroids like prednisolone and mercaptoputone. I’m currently on adalimumab. Steroids are the most effective for getting us out of a major flare, but they can’t be used long term.
