I've sheduled an appointment with my general practitioner and I am wondering if there are any specific questions or anything I should test for considering my UC.
FYI: I stopped prescriptions November 2007 and tapered prednisone totally from 5mg since that time also. I have started to flare due to poor dietary habits. I have had crazy inflamation throughout my body due to the flare. but I am eating and drinking right again and am feeling better.
So are there any specific bloodtests I should ask for. ANy help would be appreciated b/c the DR. is my first general practitioner and I have only seen her like twice in my life.
Severe Colitis (pancolitis) since January 9, 2005
currently: I must say Under Control, 1 formed BM/day
RX/day: Tapered Prednisone completely January 2008. Lost job and insurance 10/2007 and stopped taking asacol and Imuran cold turkey
(believe me I know my body and do not recommend doing this!!!)
OTC: seldom use VSL#3, vitamins & other natural treatments
Diet: SCD helps tremendously, but am not strictly on it. For Lent I gave up peanuts, sweets, and fried foods...
