  • Surgical Interventions: Surgical options such as bowel resection, strictureplasty, or fistula repair for severe cases or complications that do not respond to medical therapy.

Recognizing Common Symptoms of Crohn’s Disease

Recognizing and understanding the symptoms of Crohn’s Disease is essential for early diagnosis and effective management:

  • Abdominal Pain: Persistent, crampy abdominal pain often located in the lower right area of the abdomen.
  • Diarrhea: Frequent, watery diarrhea that may be bloody and accompanied by urgency.
  • Weight Loss: Unintended weight loss due to reduced appetite, malabsorption, and inflammation.
  • Fatigue: Chronic fatigue and weakness, sometimes associated with anemia.
  • Fever: Low-grade fever, particularly during disease flare-ups.
  • Rectal Bleeding: Bleeding from the rectum, which may occur in severe cases.

Diagnostic Approaches for Crohn’s Disease in Dubai

Accurate diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease involves a comprehensive evaluation to differentiate it from other gastrointestinal conditions:

  • Clinical Evaluation: Detailed assessment of symptoms, medical history, and family history of autoimmune or gastrointestinal disorders.
  • Laboratory Tests: Blood tests to assess inflammation markers, anemia, and nutritional deficiencies.
  • Imaging Studies: Imaging techniques such as MRI, CT scans, and ultrasound to visualize the gastrointestinal tract and assess the extent of inflammation and complications.
  • Endoscopic Evaluation: Colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or upper endoscopy to directly examine the intestinal lining, obtain tissue samples for biopsy, and assess disease activity.
