She used to have "Senna" herb to flow here bowel. Also there is a weight loss during the time of constipation it was decreasing slowly but after the treatment of crohn's has started. weight before two years was 68 , weight now is :51 her height is : 165. Diagnoses : one and half months back : The fist call to suspect crohn's was the high level of calprotectin which was 1300. CT Enterography showed crohn's in TI part , and inflammations in the small intestine as well. After repeating the colonoscopy for the third time , crohn's disease in illume was identified , and the biopiese confirmed that. Treatment: she took Imuran 50MG and Budeofalk 9MG for 10 days but made her case even worse as her appetite were totally gone. here weight start to go lower and lower so doctor switched to prednisolone 40 MG , it was been three days on it and still weight is getting lower . We need support to know what if crohn's was in remission and above symptoms was realted to something else? she is having acute bronchitis and coughing for three years?
