I agree, there is so much to learn. Suppliments, medication diet, exercise, doctors, diagnosis, costs....... I am still learning a ton but I really feel knowing more is better than just blinding trusting docs.
My doc is not a SCD fan, but I am (learned about it here). My doc is not so worried about vit d. I am am and everytime I get my blood work done I have to tell her to add the vit D tests. There are more examples but you get the intent. This is not only a place for general infomration for me, but a place where based on insight provided here I take action all the time.
The other great thing is there is healthy debate. That is, most often you get both sides of every position.

Back on Kapidex, and Pentasa (down to 1,000 mg per day due to joint pain), Vit D, fish oil and SCD vit. Metanx for peripheral neuropathy legs (getting better by the week). Entocort (6 mg). SCD since April 2010.
I hate all steriods and they do not like me much either!!!
