This topic is in correspondence to Crohnie8's "Weight Gain and constant Diarrhea" topic.
I'm curious what we feel is healthy for height/weight and gender/age and why or why not....and where we are at with our CD (i.e. Flaring, having D or C, meds, etc.)
I'll start off by saying:
5'9.5" and currently at 172lbs.
I'm comfortable at 145lbs. I feel like there is less strain on my body and mind at that weight.
My med list is below. I feel like I am on Pred. I am having constant diarrhea and doing moderate exercise, but have gained weight.
I think I am going into a full-blown flare though -- tests are coming back not-so-good. Hmmm...
Thanks for reading/posting....
