If the ulcers are not crohn's then why would he want to try remicade? Just asking.....perhaps he's thinking UC?

Remicade is a common treatment for crohn's...Many people also get confused when the doctor states "Crohn's colitis" which is just stating where primary activity of the disease is...
There are threads under Ivy6's user name...I provided a link to one of them...
Hope this helps...

With crohn's we can get polyps which are similar if not basically the same thing as ulcers...crohn's colitis mean crohn's affecting the colon, it's still crohn's though.
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
