try the diet! the plant base diet has lot of very interesting studies.
it shows very good succesrate, there is fb group, they give you very exact advices, and method.
how many years are u on steroid?
if this is long time maybe it can cause adrenal peoblem, the adrenal does not priduce enough cortisol....
in this way you can not come off the prednisone...most of GI dont think about it.
Find a endroconolgist who have experience in tapering of steroid.
you will make blood test, you check the cortisol levrl in your blood? when you are on steorid the cortisok level is very low but if you come off the steorid very carefully and your body also does not produce enough steroid the symtoms will come back.
Now at this time i think lot of surgery can be avoidable because of this problem. Most of GI does not neasure any cortisol value when the patient is tapering the steroid. They see that " ahh your symtoms are coming back" but your adrenal is not working enough cortisol... this is not problem. Or there no information about your cortisol level...maybe you have enough maybe not...
i suupose this. Because i see what i see, but naybe i am wrong.
When I did then colonoscopy I was off the prednisone. Sometimes I get on the prednisone on and off for 3 months. I tried the Stellera beginning this year and that did not work. I have not been taking any medication since May.
The only thing I did not try is the herbal diet.
