    My TNF-a was very high when I saw KDM years ago. That was before I had IBD. It was still high once I developed IBD. I take mesalazine for the IBD which may act on TNF-a. If my IBD got out of control I could end up on a monoclonal antibody for it but I haven't yet got bad enough. I suspect TNF-a is a problem for me still though. This study looks interesting. My local inflammation in my gut has a tremendous systemic impact so I'm not at all surprised by the idea it could increase the risk of Parkinsons or other such diseases.
