It has been several years now since we last ran a Prometheus that we used to monitor whether my Imuran dosage was w/in effective dosing limits but below hepatotoxicity levels. I don't know but that test has been "improved" or "updated" nor do I remember the necessary code for it.
Is anyone here using this or similar Prometheus test now who would know the current name and/or billing code for it?
I've had some weight loss since we established my current dosage and I'm running into some "mild" indications that we may have my immune system tamped down a bit more than would be ideal so I'd like to have the test run to see just were I do stand w/the current Imuran dosage or whether we need to adjust it down just a bit.
I've been doing so well (I'm DELIGHTED to say) that I've been really neglecting (I'm SORRY to say) this forum and am way out of date on much that has been and is transpiring in current testing and treatment.
Crohn's symptoms began mid-1975; Dx'd at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, early 1976; resection of 18" mid-ileum early 1978; 20 year total remission; symptomatic remission 1998 to current.
