Diet and Nutrition in Crohn Disease (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Does my medication affect my nutrition?
Some medications used to treat Crohn's disease, such as sulfasalazine (Azulfidine, Azulfidine EN-tabs, Sulfazine), can interfere with absorption of nutrients from food. Certain medications taken for other medical conditions also can affect levels of vitamins and minerals in the body. Ask your health care professional to review all of your medications.
