    I got results today from the bloodwork that I had done on Tuesday. I didn't expect my numbers to be within range as 2 weeks ago, my numbers were elevated.

    Obamacare and Crohn's Disease

    Now that the president's health reform was declared constitutional by the Supreme Court what does it mean for someone with a disease like Crohn's? Do you think it's to our advantage? I was just wondering since I was never pro Obamacare to begin with.

    Prescription question

    I decided to order my medication through my insurance's pharmacy (Express Scripts). I just checked online to see if it went thru and I saw that the doctor prescribed azathioprine but the medicine on order is mercaptopurine :ybatty:.

    All About Me

    Hi everyone, I'm a 24 year old female and this is the story to my diagnosis of Crohn's disease. In 2006, I tried to give blood but was told I was anemic. My doc sent me for further testing and I even saw a hemotologist. My ferritin was low and he put me on iron pills. I then had abdominal pains...
