Hi @katie215 - I did see your note. Working from my phone right now and not too good at it. Will post Mayo contact info when I get back home. @kanaazpereira can you answer @katie215’s question?

Hi @katie215,

I'm so glad you've joined Connect on behalf of your daughter – managing a chronic condition is a tough journey, but you don’t have to do it alone. I’d like to start by connecting you with other members who have experience with Crohn’s — either themselves or a family member. Please meet @bonitav @mswanda @kaycigirl @judylindholm @gillyk14 @thankful @spiderwebb @jay_baruch @guener @joannem @chicoco @gillyk14 @kaycigirl, @tracyann @1228angela @amyk811 @jkellyjones @lisa1965.

– Diagnosed with Crohn's but having weird symptoms https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/diagnosed-with-crohns-but-having-weird-symptoms/

I'd also sincerely encourage you to view the Gastroenterology & GI Surgery Page on Connect, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/page/gastroenterology-and-gi-surgery/ where you will find many videos by Mayo Clinic experts, discussing IBD, recent news, medication and treatments.

Here are some that might be of interest to you:
Dr. Sunanda Kane, M.D., discusses the efficacy of anti-TNF agents for Crohn’s disease.

Dr. Edward Loftus, M.D., reviews a study in which researchers reported on the safety profile of vedolizumab (Entyvio)

Dr. Kenneth Schroeder M.D., talks about Endoscopic balloon dilatation (EBD) as a recognized treatment for symptomatic Crohn's strictures.

@katie215, what concerns does your daughter have about Systemic Anti TNF Therapy?
