Interesting article, but I have not lost or gained an ounce since starting Remicade.
And I also have not met any overweight patients at the Remicade infusion center that I go to.
Mostly everyone is thin, or average weight at the center.

PB4, thank you so much for posting this.  I was overweight before being diagnosed with Crohn's.  Then came the Prednisone, which I gained about 20 pounds.  I have gained an additional 20 pounds since starting Remicade.  Julie
