bob, I hope the LDN diminishes the CRP and sed rate in your son. I'm not sure whether it affected my daughter's CRP or not, because CRP was already low, but it definitely diminished the sed rate.
tooth, very interesting, thx! The article seems to say that the median CRP value (half of patients had higher, half had lower) was 4, but the range was 0-65. The median CRP in patients with "moderate" Crohn's was 15, but the range observed was 1-100. The median CRP in patients with severe disease was 85, range of 15-183. (I do think this info, and the definitions of "mild", etc, is dated.)
In the LDN clinical trial, the median CRP was 2.6, and after the LDN was used, the median CRP fell to .9 by the twelfth week of treatment.
