When I was a kid, I got ahold of a bottle of yummy tasting Vitamin C orange chewables, they were like candy, and it was a big bottle, I bet I ate 1/2 if not more than one right after the other one day...so I googled "effects of too much Vitamin C" and found this link...
 
 
Wonder if that's what triggerd or changed things in my growing body to cause my CD (keeping in mind my mom has UC, another form of IBD)...but it makes me curious, especially since I'm the youngest of 6 kids and the only offspring of my mom's to have crohns, so far that is.

intersting article. I can play devil's advocate to your experience though. I never took any vitamin supplements and am pretty sure I did not get large quantities of vitamin C any other way (not an OJ drinker when I was young and I was a bookworm away from the sun!). I am the youngest of Dads 6/moms 7 kids too!
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

Not a vitamin taker here as a kid either -- really, the elusive search for a cause or trigger is futile. Once you have CD, you have it and the issue is how to deal with and treat it best for you.

Thanks guys for your imput, it's just that article made me think about that time when I was a stupid kid and ate way too many vitamin C's at one time, I thought maybe it was my trigger to getting the disease with what was written in the article...true though, regardless of what my trigger was I was likely bound to get CD especially since my mom has UC.

Thanks again :)
