Married To Crohn'SI am married to a woman with Crohn's. It runs in the family really bad, and she goes through the annual exams and the whole deal.
The reason I'm here, is that it was recently pointed out that her diet could be causing an iron deficiency. So as a precaution, she's going to go on Iron supplements until she can get into the doc (which she's been trying for a month with no success) and get everything looked at again.
My question is: How do these supplements affect you? She was considering just eating some broccoli... But that will just hurt her stomach even more. Her doctor thinks she has Narrowing of the bowel, and we're trying to get her in to the doc to get a referral to a specialist to get it taken care of properly. But until then... Will iron supplements affect things negatively at all? I know some supplements can cause issues with the bowels and everything, but i want to make sure this isn't one of those before I suggest that she pick some up.
