I had blood work done last week, and the nurse told me that my white blood cell count was a little low. That was it. She didn't suggest that I do anything. Is this normal for people that take Humira? She didn't even tell me that I needed to come back in and have the blood work done every few months so they can monitor this. I guess they don't care or see it as a problem.
I'm frustrated b/c I feel like I have to pull teeth to get anything out of the doctors these days. I think I'm going to call and request blood work every three months.
Crohn's Diagnosed in 1996.
Currently on Humira - One syringe every other week.
Now in remission.
Have tried Prednisone, Pentasa, Flagyl, Cipro, and Imuran in the Past - they aren't effective now.
Hospitalized only once, but that was enough!
