Question: Is it possible to have crohn's and never have symptoms?

Imuran sometimes causes hair loss: is it temporary?

I am on Imuran but never had symptoms (it was diagnosed after a colonoscopy). I am loosing hair and I think it's because of Imuran; I wonder if this will stop, or if I should think about switching to another medication.

Many thanks YG

It is possible to have active Crohn’s disease and not have symptoms.\nRegarding Imuran, it can be associated with hair loss. If the hair loss is from Imuran, it is possible that once Imuran is stopped the hair will grow back. Before stopping this medication, you should see your gastroenterologist to discuss options.
