Sustained Diet-Induced Remission in Pediatric Crohn’s Disease Is Associated With Kynurenine and Serotonin Pathways

Read the study. It made me wonder if Crohn's patients taking SSRI'S for depression or anxiety see any increase in remission rates or lengths.

Just thinking about the serotonin angle.

I also have been reading Ray Peat's article on serotonin. He had already linked excess serotonin to inflammation and TNF. It doesn't sound like new knowledge but I wonder how many Crohn's patients actually know about this.

It would be interesting if repurposing SSRI actually helps tame Crohn's.
