Thanks for your reply, actually my doctor said something about
this prednisone, but he also said that the side effects are kind of bad, that is why she decided to start only with Pentasa, 3mg/day, it is doing a week today. I will see her again this week, maybe she could get me something else.
Another thing, is it Pentasa very expensive in your country too?? Here in Brazil is something about
$250.00 the box with 50 pills.
Athensgirl, I think you are right, CD is kind of rare here in Brazil, the doctors do not seem prepared to diagnose it. One of them suggested that I had HIV because of the diarrhoea, can you believe that, another one said I had cancer, and another was so unpleasant that suggested that is everything in my head, that I should see a psychiatrist. I did a lot of Exams, for everthing, even for tuberculosis, hepatitis B and C, Syphilis, HIV, everything resulted Negative.
My doctor suggested that I should try to cut milk products at least while I am in flare. Do you guys agree with this?
It was good to find this forum...I was feeling te only person on earth with this problem...Never heard before, and there is few information in portuguese, almost of them say the same thing.
Thanks guys!! You are very nice!
