I have had colitis for twenty-eight years. If you are still suffering please let me know and maybe I can help.

Wow! That’s a long time!! What kind of colitis do you have and what has helped? I’ve completed the loading doses of the Entyvio and will have the labs next week (C-reactive protein and Calprotectin) to check the inflammation markers and determine if the Entyvio is working. I’m off the prednisone completely and have been on a plant based diet for about 2 and a half months and I’m actually feeling better! I’ve stopped bleeding and losing weight. My bathroom visits have decreased from 12-15 a day to 2-3, which is a major relief. I am cautiously optimistic while I wait to see when my next dose of Entyvio will be and if the insurance will continue to cover it. This has been a very challenging and scary two years!!! How have you handled colitis for 28 years??? Thanks for any insight or information you’re able to share!
