Hi Jim,

Thanks for your question! Crohn's Disease is a condition that may occur with Autism. A person with Asperger's Disease might have dietary intolerances, such as gluten, casein, or lactose intolerance; greater risk of immune system disorders related to digestion, such as Crohn's disease or celiac disease and food allergies.
