He's probably going to start you on 6MP. My GI doctor started me on the 6MP over five years ago. After taking it for six months, he said I had to have that Prometheus Test..lol. Apparently it came back fine. I do have to have my blood count drawn every month to make sure my white count doesn't go any lower. It is now at 2.9. I lowered my dose of the 6MP when my white count was at 2.4. Scared me to death. I now take 50 mgm one day and 25 the next. Been working like a charm since last Nov.
