My 11 year old son has been diagnosed with both fmf and crohns(confirmed by genetic testing). His albumin is extremely low. Anyone treated both?

My 11 year old son has been diagnosed with both fmf and crohns(confirmed by genetic testing). His albumin is extremely low. Anyone treated both?

Crohn's can result in malabsorption as well as loss of protein in the gut. A pre-albumin and tests of factor production of the liver can help determine if it is a production problem vs loss. ...Read more
