How long can remission last with Crohn's disease?

ANSWER

People with Crohn's disease experience periods of severe symptoms. These are followed by periods with no symptoms when the disease is in remission. With Crohn's disease, remission can last for weeks or even years. Unfortunately, there is no way to determine when a remission will occur or when symptoms will return.
