I go for my Cat scan enterography Thursday. From this test do you think they can see what is causing the inflammation or if it scarring?
Also, doc said we can't follow your disease with ESR or CRP levels since they are always near normal and due to this the remicade may not work for my type of crohns? I asked what percentage he was talking about and he said in other cases remicade works 90% of the time but in those who have had no rise in ESR or CRP but show moderate to severe inflammation on CAT scan it only works 50% of the time. He said the good thing is that you will know if remicade works usually after one treatment.
Is there any blood test or any other test that can tell if remicade will work for me??
