LOL Judy....I do tend to ignore stats...for they can always be fudged depending on what outcome "they're" wanting to encourage. What determines remission? I could be considered in permanent remission by some doctors....med supported,however. Depends on what determines a flare as well.
I had a doctor tell me that my having PSC was UNLIKELY because I'm female. Hmmm...I've seen more females recently diagnosed with PSC than males...although they tend to seek others and info more than males....well, based on stats anyway....bwwwwwwaaaaaahahahaaaa!!!
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... increased enemas to nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
