Insult to Injury
I continue to do research on Crohn's Disease. It is just something that I do; I believe that at some point there will be a break-through that doesn't appear too good to be true. In lieu of that panacea, though, I have only found that there are apparently some more surprises to look forward.
People with Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis -- due to the nature of the malady -- are more prone to the following issues: eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, asthma, arthritis, hay fever, rhinitis, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis. All of these are auto-immune disorders that are caused by the same out of control elements in our body with the past two items having the least case study support. I don't look at this knowledge as a bad thing. Knowing ahead of time what may be in store for me allows me to plan and live my life accordingly while also attempting holistic preventative measures.
