Being the mother of a young man with UC, I have to admit I did not know there were 5 different types of Crohn's disease. I'm attaching the link to the healthline article that I found, but I'm curious to know if those in our community with Crohn's know exactly which type they have:

  • ileocolitis
  • ileitis
  • gastroduodenal Crohn’s disease
  • jejunoileitis
  • Crohn’s colitis

    This is interesting. Based on what I know about the location of my disease, I'd assume I have ileocolitis, but this isn't something I've ever discussed with my doctor.
