I got my blood test results when the Doctor rang me this morning, High CRP, High WBC and High Ggt WHICH HE SAYS IS DUE TO CROHN'S Active Inflammation. No wonder i Feel so tired. My cholesterol is very high also and he wants me to start a cholesterol lowering medication, what are others experiences with active crohn's using cholesterol lowering medication? What side effects have you experienced?

My hubby was on Questran for his Crohn's and it was a med for lowering cholesterol. I know some of the meds may make you feel tired but most people adjust.

Take care
