I started Entocort today. My GI says it's fine for maintenance since 99% of the medication is metabolized by the liver, so virtually none of it goes into the bloodstream. If it works out I plan to stay on it indefinitely.

Having UC has made me lose a few pounds. Maybe taking more of the Entocort I'll have some cravings. I can afford to gain a few pounds. Oh to be able to eat chocolate.

Craving salt, eh?? I started entocort December '06. At the time I was pregnant, so I thought the salt craving was just from that. My baby is one year old now and I'm still on entocort---and I still crave salt. I thought I was just weird.
Diagnosed with UC in August 2005. 
Suffered for my whole life before being diagnosed. 
Told to "Eat more fibre."
