My 6 yo was diagnosed w/ a mild case of uc in March (still not 100% sure i believe diagnosis). He was on pentassa but relapsed. we tried 2 kinds of enemas before the gi put him on prednisone. he was on a low dose of this for about
3 months w/ out a problem. We introduced imuran about
7 weeks ago and stopped the prednison about
3 weeks ago. The last blood test showed the imuran wasn't kicking in yet. He's been fine since June. How long til the prednison is out of his system? i'm so nervous every time he goes #2.
Does anyone know anything about the possible links to food allergies? friend went to a ped conference and heard that research is being done but didn't have any other info.
thank you for any help you may throw my way
