Pictured here is Dr.med. vet. Heinrich Dahmen. The photo was taken at the 14th International Colloquium on Paratuberculosis held in Mexico, June 2018. He is the picture of good health.
However, in November 2000, he was not feeling at all well and in April 2001 a diagnosis of Crohn’s disease was made based on colonoscopy. Today he is healthy and actively engaged in practicing veterinary medicine.
Heinrich agreed to report his success story here to provide hopes for others with Crohn’s disease and to inspire further work on the role MAP plays in the pathogenesis of this common problem.
