use. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dose</span>
was increased up to 15mg/kg at the highest. Took it for
3 years total, befor
e surgery. After 2006 surgery, Remicade was stopped, Crohn's was gone, but had a flare of gout for
the first time in the hospital. The gout
went away. Since then, I have high uric acid show up in my blood work a couple of times a year, I usually get checked monthly.
