Hi Woogy! I would take whatever made me feel good. If the LDN works, go with it. Personally, I don't know what LDN is. Never heard of it. Could you enlighten me please?
I've been with my GI doctor since being diagnosed in 1998 while hospitalized. We have bucked heads more than once but I feel very comfortable with him. I fought him tooth and nail because I didn't want to go on 6MP. I finally relented after battling with him over the issue for two years. Well, the 6MP does NOT keep me in remission. I have flares about once a year. Last year was my worse and he tried talking me into Remicade. Well, I did a lot of research on Remicade and while it does work for some people, it is NOT an option for me.
I would love to have more info about the LDN. I see my GI doctor next month and I will mention it to him. I'm not too happy taking 6MP as it lowered my white count to 2.4..too low in my opinion.
