    The primary of an IBD is to reduce the incidences of a relapse and prolong the amount of time between in order to improve nutritional status. There have been some medical advances to help relieve symptoms of Chrohn's Disease including:
    Corticosteroids (ie. Cortisol, Prednisone)
    Anti-inflammatory Agents (NSAIDS ie. Ibuprofen)
    Immunosuppressants (ie. Azasan, Imuran, or Azathiprine)
    Antibiotics (ie. Metronidazole)
    Anticytokine Medications (ie. Infliximab)
    Surgery may also be necessary when medical management fails which involves the removal of intestinal segments. Removal of too many segments can result in short-bowel syndrome which requires parenteral nutrition to receive adequate nutrients required for life.

    Limit fats because the GI tract will be lacking digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas to break down fat.
    Stop intake of fluid and foods by mouth to reduce pancreatic activity. This usually calls for parenteral nutrition or an NG tube to the stomach. This helps to give the pancreas a rest.

    One should go through many lab tests. For acute pancreatitis digestive or pancreatic enzymes such as amylase and lipase in the blood will be high. Glucose, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate may also be high. Ultrasounds may also be given in order to find out what the root cause of the pancreatitis is. CT and X-ray scans may also be helpful.
