Vedolizumab screening process

Can anyone on Vedolizumabntell me what's involved in the screening process? Should I taper even more of my prednisone to hope for more inflamtion for one of the requirements?

I Ammon 20mg of prednisone andi am not having many complications on the steroid, like maybe 3 bowel movements a day, and minor pain. So I saw one of the requirements is to have active inflammation. I think a CPT test would show something like that, I recently had a scope so they do t need to do that again. Thanks in advance.
