My daughter is 17 and is suffering with Adrenal exhaustion, low dhea and psoriasis in combination with her Crohn's disease.  Is this common in other Crohn's patients.  I had to take her to a internal medicine specialist to find all of this out b/c her Gastro dr. doesn't check any of this.  So frustrating...
