my family and I have put my disease into remission with the SCD diet. I was on 40 mg of pred for three weeks and getting nowhere with it. I ended up in the ER because I was feeling dizzy and my GI wanted to put me on 6-mp. I refused to take the 6-mp and i decided to give the diet a fanatical try 6 weeks ago. I am now in remission and am down to 5 mg of prednisone. I am currently on Stage 3 foods(according to the pecanbread.com website), and am doing well. The challenge is I have lost 15 lbs and it is hard to gain it back when you don't have complex carbs to help you gain the weight but I am in remission and use the toilet only once a day! It has been a godsend, but i must warn you it is a challenge not to be able to eat the Standard American Diet.

I decided to become a pharmacist to understand these drugs, and to help fellow sufferers of IBD.
