Hi is it anything to do with the medication you are on? My liver function went high in the first week of starting 6mp. The ibd nurse took me straight off it.

Hi i dont know about remicade. I have 2 young children so not a option for me. I am waiting for my liver function to go back to normal went over 400 with 6mp. ON 18 December 2012 I was taken off it and asked do I want Humira or Remicade. I have chosen Humira but cant start until my liver function goes back to normal. Still not back to normal seems to be taking a very long time to return to normal. Sorry cant answer your question maybe somebody else can. Take care.

jeez, well hopefully the humira will work for you. was 6mp any good apart from raising your liver enzymes.
I have a feeling my problem is drug related too.
sure why not. as if it weren't complicated enough.
I have 2 young kids too. interested why you thought it wasn't an option for you.
best of luck with the humira.

Hi thanks hopefully Humira will help. I was only on 6mp for one week so didnt have time to work. I dont have anyone to help me with the kids in the day. Thats why i chose the Humira. I dont need to rely on anyone that way.
