Hi, I’m Dr. Jeff Kreikemeer, I’m one of the partners at Gateway Gastroenterology. I just wanted to provide a brief update for our Crohn’s and colitis patients. Many of you have contacted the office inquiring about whether or not to continue on infusions. We understand that there is a concern because of the fact that these are immunosuppressive medications. But, we also understand that if the medications were to be stopped, that there’s a high risk for flare that would require steroids and ultimately lead to hospitalizations.

So, according to the various societies, and in accordance with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, we are urging all of our patients with crohn’s and colitis to continue on infusion-based therapy.

Please contact the office if you have additional questions or concerns.
