Hey just wanted to let you know I had an appt with my GI today, and I asked him how come sometimes we are so sick but our blood or other tests come back normal.  His response was because sometimes the inflammation is in a smaller localized area and just doesn't show up in the tests.  Hope that helps a little.

Hi Gail,

Wow, that's interesting, Thanks for the additional info. Makes you wonder about trusting the tests.


My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Initially, 9 weeks of Prednisone, currently taking 2000mgs of Pentasa.
