About Me

Hi everyone, my name is Kenzie. I have struggled with gastrointestinal issues for most of my life, but I didn’t realize how bad it was until after I got diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease on 2016-01-22 12.24.43December 19th, 2013. My diagnosis has been bouncing around between Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis since then. Right now my diagnosis is Indeterminate Colitis which means that I show symptoms of both Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

My IBD has been a pain in the ass to treat. I’m allergic to Imuran and I have very bad reactions to melsalamine drugs(5ASAs). I’m currently on weekly doses of Humira and that seems to be working well. I’m hoping that I can continue to be on it for a while. I think the next step after Humira is Remicade but we’ll cross that bridge when it gets here!

I originally started this blog to talk about my fructose malabsorption that I got diagnosed with in July of 2013. It has evolved quite a bit since then. Now I’m blogging about IBD and the books I read. I also plan to blog more about my motorcycle(I haven’t been doing a good job of that). So you will be seeing a little bit of this and that on here. I hope you enjoy and decide to stick around.
