Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking.

With regards to the first question I can say that colitis doesn't cause Alzheimer disease.

There is no study to prove that colitis can cause Alzheimer but recent studies shows that both IBD ( inflammatory bowel disease) and Alzheimer disease are caused by inflammation and immunity.
So they may be associated with each other but not caused each other

Hope it was helpful!
