My 9-year-old daughter has Crohn’s.
My 9-year-old daughter has Crohn’s. She has also tested positive for a Lyme-specific band on western blot but is not CDC positive for Lyme. we have not tackled that yet. A couple of years ago, before diagnosis and before I knew better, she was on Miralax for a few months. Our pediatrician was able to get her off of that by supplementing magnesium. She now sees a nutritionist who specializes in Crohns. He has not mentioned magnesium, and didn’t seem overly concerned when I did. I have continued using mag oil on her feet (honestly, when I remember – which is most days) but that’s it. I should mention that she also wets the bed every night 0- the only time that slowed down was when she first tested positive for the Lyme band and was on amoxicillin for a few months. Thoughts or suggestions?
