My daughter is med free since she became an adult and decided no more. Trouble is she is not even under doctors care for her Crohn's. Off meds for 8 years. I know that when she does flare, it's going to be bad. She does have some signs of disease activity. Has accidents and has to run to the restroom. Has bloating and pain but she is still rebellious. I have made her promise to see a doctor as soon as she gets insurance for herself.
She has a six year old daughter and is concerned of crohn's because it seems to run in the family. My granddaughter is 6 and only weighs 32 lbs. Teeny-tiny thing. Her pediatrician is running blood tests on her today just to be on the safe side.
