Dixie, I am also overweight and wish I could find a solution. My body seems to just hang on to fat Also, since I was diagnosed I even gained more. I swear it happened when starting entocort but who knows. I am trying to eat as healthy as possible. I do think the Lap band would not be a good idea. You never know what it could do to your CD.
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On 150mg Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & Entocort (take zofran for nausea now)
