What is the life expectancy of someone with Crohn’s disease?

Crohn's disease is a chronic condition that can have an impact on a person's quality of life. However, with proper treatment and management, most people with Crohn's disease have a normal life expectancy.

Life expectancy for people with Crohn's disease varies depending on many factors, such as the severity of the disease, the presence of complications, and how well the disease is controlled with treatment.

In general, people with Crohn's disease who have mild symptoms and good response to treatment have a normal life expectancy. However, people with more severe diseases or who develop complications may have a slightly reduced life expectancy.

Complications such as bowel obstruction, perforation, strictures, fistulas, and abscesses can develop in some people with Crohn's disease and can lead to increased morbidity and mortality.

Proper treatment, regular follow-up with healthcare professionals, and close monitoring of symptoms can help to reduce the risk of complications and improve the overall outcome for people with Crohn's disease.
