Crohn’s disease treatment and hair loss

Hair loss can be due to zinc deficiency, or iodine deficiency, both of which can accompany Crohns. These nutrients are essential for the working of the thyroid glands so question – is she having any thyroid issues?

Her blood tests are all over the place. I think it is the T4 that has been off. Thanks for the info…she has to see a Dr soon and is seeing a hematologist at the end of the month, so will see if they will check into this. Any other ideas?
