Finally got insurance approval for Stelara every 4 weeks
Took a very long time
Fingers crossed it helps Ds arthritis enough
Crohns isn’t the best but not the worst right now
My son improved moving to every 4 weeks. I have a feeling that someday, the prescribing dose for many that are younger will be 4 weeks....it seems a lot of people need to move to that with Crohns. Good luck and update us on how this change works!

My son saw a lot of improvement but still rectal inflammation so want to add in MTX
