I can't answer for anyone else but me. I know that my CRP has been checked, but I don't have copies of all of my blood work, and especially dating back to when I was first diagnosed and trying to find the right treatment. I've had this DD for well over 20 years and I just don't have the paperwork from back them. I also have different doctors than I had then. I do know that my white blood count is monitored, and because of my 6MP my liver panel tests.
This could be the difference. You have a young daughter, who is still trying to find the right treatment plan, still actively flaring and still growing. Keeping her inflammation down and in check is key to managing her case (I'm guessing here). My doctors are pretty confident that my disease is stable, with minimal activity and they never hesitate to put me through the nasty tests if they feel they want a closer look. I also assume you are seeing a pediatric GI, so perhaps a bit different in their approach.

Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!
