Horsepuckies? What about
quality of life? And which drugs increase respiratory disease? (The precious biologics the gastro profession is so excited about
). There is a method of balancing the immunosuppressants such as Imuran and 6MP w/the risk of lowering the immune system too much.
Since I have COPD (from smoking, not Crohn's meds), the biologics are out for me. But I'm sure FAITHFUL taking my beloved Imuran and we monitor my results on a regular bases or when there is any weight loss or gain. As long as my meds give me quality of life, stuff quantity of life. I'm not worried about
If I don't have quality of life satisfactory to me I'll find a way out of it. I don't intend to hang around for quantity w/o quality.
And Mcleaver: our immune systems aren't compromised to less than necessary (underactive) due to Crohn's, the Crohn's is a result of our OVERACTIVE immune system!
