Crohn's Disease - Disability Claim

Crohn’s Disease is a disorder that inflames the lining of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The patches of inflamed intestine can penetrate healthy tissue and erode the layers from inner to outer lining. While Crohn’s is treatable, the medication can be expensive and insurance companies can sometimes apply higher premiums or altogether deny coverage to individuals with chronic symptoms.

Crohn's Disease

Crohn’s can occur at any point in the GI tract and disrupt the body’s ability to digest food, absorb nutrition and eliminate waste in a healthy manner. Crohn’s is usually present in the lower part of the small bowel and colon. While the symptoms may vary, they most commonly include abdominal pain, cramping, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and weight loss or lack of energy.

This is a lifelong disease, with an average risk of yearly flare ups at 30%. There is currently no cure for Crohn’s disease, but medical advances are making improvements to treatment. While treatment can diminish flare ups, there will still be points where those suffering from this disease will have to deal with painful and persistent symptoms, making it difficult to function in day to day life.
