Disclosing medical condition to work


I work in a school in Switzerland. I suffer from stomach problems (I currently suspect Crohns) which affect me most in the mornings. I always have suffered but in the last year it has got worse.

I have intentionally made my timetable so that I don't have to be in until 9.30am most days in case I am having a bad day. The only thing is the staff meetings which I struggle to get in on time for (even if I wake up super early I can still be late due to my stomach) and I need to tell senior management the reason as to why I am sometimes late. I booked a meeting to talk to a member of senior management tomorrow.

In regards to medical confidentiality - how much do I need to disclose? Do I need to tell them everything or just that I have a medical problem that affects me the most in the morning?
