Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the anus, but it most commonly affects the small and large intestines.

Crohn's symptoms vary from person to person, and they can change over time. There is no cure for the condition. Treatment focuses on getting the disease into remission, when a person experiences very limited symptom.

Can someone with Crohn's disease drink alcohol?

Alcohol can affect the immune system, prompting changes to chemicals that cause inflammation in the gut. This can trigger or worsen symptoms. These chemical changes can disrupt the functioning of the gut. People with Crohn's disease are particularly susceptible to this type of intestinal damage.

Because each person with Crohn's has a different experience, there is no simple rule about how to handle alcohol. Alcohol may cause no Crohn's symptoms in one person, but severe reactions in another, who may need to eliminate it completely from their diet.

Also, people with Crohn's can react differently to different types of alcohol. For example, hard liquor may be easy to tolerate, while beer is a strong trigger for symptoms. It is important for anyone with Crohn's to take time and speak with their doctor about symptoms and how they evolve.

Avoiding alcohol for a while and reintroducing it slowly can help a person get a better idea of how their body responds.

What are the signs of a flare-up?

A flare-up is a period of increased inflammation in the tissue that Crohn's affects. This can lead to a host of other symptoms, including:

• diarrhea
• abdominal pain, cramping, or both
• rectal bleeding
• constipation that may lead to a bowel obstruction
• bowel movement urgency

Some people also have symptoms in other parts of the body. These can include:
• joint pain
• a rash
• sores in or on the mouth
• fatigue • a loss of appetite


Anyone with Crohn's should discuss ways of managing flare-ups with a doctor. If they have identified a trigger, they should remove it from their diet as quickly as possible.

It is a good idea to keep anything that can help with a flare-up handy. For some people, this means:

• pain relievers
• a heating pad
• hygienic wipes
• antidiarrheal medication
• mild soap to clean irritated or sensitive anal tissue
• medicated mouthwash for sores
• barrier ointment
