My GI prescribes drugs like candy or at least tried with me. I already demonstrated that I am allergic to mesalamines, even throwing up after inserting Canasa suppositories. In a follow up visit four weeks after the start of my remission, (I thought I was fine), he prescribed Asacol and 40 mg of prednisone.
The only reason why I went to the doctor in the first place was to see if he could end my flare, and my flare had already ended. There is diabetes in my family and my fasting blood sugar levels spike unless I am careful how I eat. The side effects of pred are horrendous besides possibly sending me over the edge into diabetes so I refused to take it. My GI became angry and said I was risking cancer unless I took pred to snuff out any lingering inflammation. I told him if he was so concerned about
cancer then why didn’t he check my blood levels of vitamin D and folate. Needless to say he fired me as his patient.

Watch diet to maintain remission. Powdered Psyllium seeds especially helpful.
