I have been following a whole food plant based diet for nearly two years, which has been wonderful (no meat, daily or processed foods). The 13 months in remission was blissful. This past flare has been weeks of hell, with more weight loss, pain, and hospitalization for severe dehydration. They also gave me IV steroids. I started the Stelara 3 weeks ago (loading dose infusion) and I am hoping the symptom improvement is from that and not the prednisone, which I have tapered down to 25 mg daily thus far. I have gone from 10-16 daily, bloody mush BMs to 2-3 daily formed stool without seeing blood for 2 days. I have also stopped losing a pound a day (can't afford to lose anymore weight). I was also too weak to take my daily walk, which I have resumed for 5 days now, so there is improvement and for the first time in weeks, I am hopeful….
