While on LDN has anyone had fistulas that cleared up or did any new develop or get worse while on LDN? Was wondering if LDN causes imflamation to decrease?

I know a kid that is using LDN, he had fistulas that cleared up after using LDN for a while. LDN is causing inflammation to decrease. If you want to learn more: www.ldninfo.org I am using LDN and have done so for more than a year. I had a flare when I started using LDN, and had those terrible obstructions, or partial obstructions quite often, I was vomiting and had terrible stomach cramps and colic like pain. I was severe anemic. I couldn't eat anything without getting pain, and if I had some vegetables or fruits I ended up with an obstructed and narrowed (inflamed) small intestines, so narrowed that the food couldn't pass. All this was prior LDN. From the first 3 mg of LDN my pain improved. During the next 2 - 3 weeks all the other symptoms was gone. By now I can eat what I want, I only use LDN to prevent a new flare. I have to use this medicine as long as I have Crohns. So - untill there is a cure, there is LDN!! :-)
It's so wise of you starting the SCD diet, why not use this in combination with LDN?
