Just curious, we've discussed the low potassium but do you guys struggle with other vitamin/mineral issues as well.  I have chronic low potassium and B12 even with supplements but the others such as Calcium, mag,etc.  stay right at the low normal border sometimes a point or two lower.  Anyone else??

B12 and others might need shots/IV's to get better. Multipule vitamin issues is common with Crohns.
