Mom Jamie emailed me the following question. I also got a call from another mom last week regarding Remicade.
Please share with us your experience or what your opinion about Remicade is. What would your advice be to Mom Jamie about trying the SCD Diet versus Remicade? THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS!!!
My 9 yr old daughter was diagnosed with crohns last yr. she was on 6mp, and the doctor just suggested remicade instead since she still had inflammation when he did her colonoscopy. I don’t like the possible side effects of it so I am researching other options. Was your son on any medication when he started scd? I’m wondering if something is needed until the diet starts to work. Did your doctor support you when you first started? Any advice or info is appreciated. Thanks so much! Jamie
I spoke with Jamie earlier this week about her email. I hope she finds a clear answer to her question. I know as a mom our child’s health is a hard decision on which direction to go.
I have never had any experience with Remicade but have heard other moms talk about it. I did share with Jamie that I have not heard anything good about Remicade and have heard of alot of bad side effects. I highly recommend at least giving the diet a try for 6 months. I think it would be well worth it and looking back she will have at least tried it and not wondered. I do not think 6 months will hurt to wait and I believe she will have seen good results within this time.
I am hoping to hear from you moms what your advice is. Thank you so much! You never know who you are helping that is reading the blog with your comments!
