Crohn's disease can make it hard to keep your weight healthy and get the nutrients you need. But it's possible.
The inflammation linked to Crohn’s can give you nausea and diarrhea, as well as curb your appetite. As a result, you may eat less, making it harder to keep weight on.
Some Crohn's medicines may also affect your weight. Corticosteroids such as prednisone can cause temporary weight gain. If that bothers you, talk with your doctor.
