Crohn's disease: Nottingham man spends seven years "exhausted" by bowel disease. (News)

27th Nov 2023

John Tarr, 59, has spent the better part of a decade living with Crohn's disease, which causes debilitating bowel problems. Symptoms of Crohn's can include pain, diarrhoea, tiredness and blood in your poo – but other parts of the body can also be affected.

For the past 10 months, John has been taking low dose naltrexone (LDN) after a prescription from Bodyline, which helps to regulate the body's immune system.

"I have a better standard of living and I can finally go travelling," John said. "I can just jump on a plane and go anywhere, whereas before I really had to consider how Crohn’s would affect me. I’m not nervous anymore, I can do anything."
