I read somewhere recently, that the first year of Crohn's is the best indicator of how severely the disease will progress. If the first year is severe, than the likely course of the disease will be severe. If mild then mild. Does anyone know if this theory holds any water? It would be nice to have some indicators for how the disease will progress.
My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Initially, 9 weeks of Prednisone, currently taking 2000mgs of Pentasa.
