HOUSE had an episode in the 1st season with a Santa Claus who had INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. "It's bad enough having to go every hour but when the kiddies jump in my lap...ugh!" I bet it was Crohn's and I bet the reason they didn't SAY Crohn's is because not many people would have gotten "the joke"!
House prescribed him a cigarrette a day. I, personally, would rather deal with my bowels than smell like smoke. :)
Diagnosed in October, 2003 at age 31.
Currently taking Colazal, Nexium, One-A-Day multivitamin
Secondary conditions: mouth ulcers, joint pain, extreme fatigue
