Hello, I am 32 years old and a teacher. I was diagnosed with CD in 2005. I have been on almost every medication but the injectables. I am currently on Pentasa, Entocort, fish oil and now Wellbutrin because of the anxiety associated with CD. I will be starting probiotics soon, as I have heard they help. I was in remission for about
a year, but now I am having a minor flare up. I had a major flare up in 2006 and was hospitalized for a few weeks, no surgery though. I am trying to diet and I work out almost every day, but cannot seem to lose more than 1 or 2 lbs a week. I need to lose 50 and it should be going faster than this, but I was told that some of the meds will cause weight gain. Around the time I got sick the first time, I lost over 100 lbs. Then, my Dr. put me on Pred and I gained 50 within 3 months. I then went into remission after a while. Now, I am out of remission and can't get this darn weight off! I would like to be thin for once in my life, but this disease and all the meds involved are not making it any easier! So, that's me in a nutshell.
