My GI likes to have the prometheous answer test to check the remicade and antibodies done at 4 weeks after infusion and the day of my infusion. (right before) The same with regular blood tests. When I questioned him we went over all the labs together, he explained what he was looking for, and how it impacts his decision on how to treat. Once I am stable and the perscribed treatments working he eases off the tests....until I have an issue.
I get a large quantity of IV steroid and benedryl before every infusion. It wards off reactions.
