Joshsick2011, Crohn's is a hereditary autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the GI tract. WebMD has a great IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) board with a large number of people who could answer just about any question you could ask. Look for the 'Crohn's and Colitis Exchange' group on WebMD.View Thread
