Since the digestive system is most commonly affected, the most characteristic symptoms of Whipple disease occur in the digestive tract. Whipple disease patients may have chronic diarrhea, which may sometimes be bloody. They may also experience abdominal cramping and pain. This might become worse after meals, since the body is trying unsuccessfully to break down food. When the food isn't digested and absorbed properly, there's often pain as the undigested portions move through the intestines. Cramping in the abdomen and diarrhea are usually the symptoms that cause patients to seek a diagnosis, but other symptoms may develop before the gastrointestinal symptoms become apparent.
