Patients Crohn's disease
Topic of the discussion
Posted on 8/17/20 6:17 PM
Hi, I have a query after visiting my doctor the other day and I'm curious.
Have any of you have been diagnosed with any other disease supposedly related to Crohn's disease?
I have a few other health problems and I'm told "You know with Crohn's disease it's normal for X or Y to happen"... So if I didn't have Crohn's I wouldn't have this other condition? 🤔
I've read that depression and other mental health problems are common with IBD and other gut disorders, but I wasn't aware of others and my internet research is proving to be futile.
Thanks for any replies!

Hello members, what do you think about this? Do you have any comorbidities (a co-occurring condition) with your Crohn's disease?

@mrjetson1990 @Courtney_J I have depression (which I definitely believe is caused by my Crohn's) and I'm anemic too. My doctor told me it's pretty common for Crohnies to have iron-deficiency anemia. Do you have it too? It makes me so tired. I'm taking B12 for it but I think I need to up my dose.
