Have any of you been on this? Have you had positive effects? How long does it take to begin growing again> My 10 year old is anxious about his height. Also, do you know other frum boys with chron's? I am looking for a friend for him with this illness.

I tried remicade and it didn't help me at all. Everyone reacts differently to it.

Dear fellow sufferer sh';

May Hashem bless you with all the refuos needed soon.

My daughter has Crohn's/collitis i.e. it most affects her colon. She is now 8yrs old and has had this condition since she was 6yrs old, Pesach time to be exact.

1)In order that a child should grow; two things have to be done:
Weaned off steroids such as Prednisone/Cortisone and control of the inflammation.

2)Remicaide can work miracles and will let the child grow but it can cause the body to create
anti-bodies and render the Remicaide useless. Remember that Remicaide is a foreign object and the body will do anything to reject this "new" biological agent.
The best way to improve the chance for the Remicaide infusion to work would be by administering a low dose of an immunosupressant to ward off the body's anti-bodies.
An immunosupressant can be Methtrexate or Imuran as you should seek your doctor's advice. One word of caution some but few may react adversely to Imuran a.k.a. 6MP and should be tested prior to starting Imuran/6MP as it can cause pancreatitius which is quite painful.

Good luck;

Avrumi
