“LifeLine,” Hosted by Joan Lunden Educates Viewers on Crohn’s Disease


Through Public Television segments, LifeLine educates viewers on the key issues associated with this disease.

West Palm Beach, FL, March 19, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The body’s immune system is designed to help protect the body from infection. However, with an autoimmune disorder called Crohn’s Disease, the immune system is unable to differentiate between normal body tissue and foreign substances. The response is an overactive immune response that leads to chronic inflammation.

Crohn’s Disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) typically found in the last part of the small intestine and the first part of the large intestine. Symptoms include abdominal pain, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and unintentional weight loss. Though there is no known cure, medical professionals are able to treat the symptoms. The cause of the disease is unknown though genetics seem to play a role in causing the disease.

The Public Television series, LifeLine, hopes to educate viewers on this chronic disease and the symptoms and factors leading to Crohn’s Disease. The series will highlight organizations and medical professionals dedicated to finding a cure.

*LifeLine and its programming are not affiliated with PBS. Our programs are independently produced and distributed to Public Television affiliate stations nationwide.
