Most times mouth ulcers (canker sores) are harmless, but they sometimes indicate the presence of Crohn’s disease or celiac disease.
Mouth ulcers are unpleasant and annoying at the best of times, but have you ever considered why you’re suffering with them?
Ttiredness and weight loss could be the reason for mouth ulcers – or it could be something more serious altogether.
The doctor suggested a blood test or ‘biopsy of the gut’ could be used by healthcare professionals to diagnose the disease.
Shockingly, recurrent mouth ulcers could also be a symptom of Crohn’s disease.
Crohn’s is caused by inflammation in the lining of the gut, all the way from the mouth to the anus.
