Both my daughter and I have Crohn's. My granddaughter just turned 6. My daughter is concerned that Skyler might have crohn's since she is so tiny, gets mouth ulcers, says her tummy hurts fairly frequently. She talked to her pediatrician and the doctor ordered blood tests. I'm not sure if it's the prometheus test but does that show if you have crohn's or just that you're pre-disposed to getting it in the future? I think it checks your DNA markers.
