Could someone give me some information on Crohn's disease (I believe
this is how it is spelled)- such as how it is diagnosed and how it
affects the body? Doctors are currently testing my 16 year old
sister (who has 4 ulcers on her esophagus), but she refuses to have a
'colonoscopy' (sp?) performed. Is this necessary for a diagnosis?
Also, is this a genetic disease, or one acquired in life? The doctors
my mother has been talking with don't seem to be giving her much feed-
back in the matter.
My apologies for posting this in an inappropriate news group, and
any information would be greatly appreciated.
