Hello,
 
Do you get the positive occult-blood-test result when on infliximab? I'd done this test recently and the blood do have been there. Is it normal? My doctor tells me not to worry, because even the smallest wound in the bowel can give micro-bleeding which's detected with this test.
 
confused
My drugs (I've UC for a few years, if anybody was curious; autodiagnosed SA and depressive problems): mesalazine, azathioprine, infliximab, iron meds, vitamins (sometimes) & probiotics; the methylprednisolone therapy of several months if needed (then, protectively, potassium meds and omeprazole as well).
I worry about my liver and kidneys for the reasons above, I hope that unnecessarily.
I worry if anxiety problems (SA) could impact on the UC as well.
I have nothing more to say at the moment (I've already said very much for me...).
