Crohn’s disease can be hard to cope with.  Autoimmune disorders are notorious for their difficulty to treat.

A group of investigators were interested in the relationship between high levels of homocysteine and Crohn’s disease.  A group of subjects with the condition were tested for homocysteine.  They found that about half had higher than normal levels.

We have previously written about the toxic effects of high homocysteine levels.  The researchers concluded that it may also be implicated in Crohn’s disease.  The B vitamins B6, folic acid and B12 help keep levels normal.
