Frequently Asked Questions

What is the life expectancy for those with Crohn's?

The life expectancy of Crohn’s disease is not reduced by the condition as long as that person keeps their symptoms in check. Even when symptoms aren’t manifesting, someone with Crohn’s is at risk of colorectal cancer, deep vein thrombosis, or other complications. As long as someone with Crohn’s maintains regular check-ups, they should expect the same lifespan as someone without the condition.
