Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease which has symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea and weight loss. There are 2 million US sufferers of the disease. Researchers have recently published a study which reports that calcium and Vitamin D therapy are more effective at preventing bone loss and improving bone mineral density in Crohn's patients than by using bone building drugs as well as calcium and vitamin D. Crohn's sufferers often suffer from bone loss caused by corticosteroids, poor nutrition, active inflammation and calcium and vitamin D deficiencies.
