Yes, she is iron deficient and vitamin D deficient, too. Taking even the low dosage of 25mg iron can, I found out, interfere with zinc absorption for up to 4 hours.
She aleady gets about 7 mg of zinc in her SCD multivitamin at lunch. And starting yesterday, she is taking another 22.5 mg of zinc picolinate at dinner. So we will have to see whether this helps.
I'm sure the Entocort interferes with D absorption, and suspect it of causing other deficiencies, too, so am hoping the LDN will allow her to taper off at least temporarily.
