Does anyone know the reason for a low metabolite level? My Gi tested me to see if I am a candidate for 6mp, she planned on starting me on it. But, I have improved, so hopefully I can remain on the Azulfidine.
My GI said that with the low metabolite level, I could still start 6mp, if needed. But I am curious about
what causes a low level or perhaps is it just genetic?
