Well, Is Budesonide Time....


Recommended Posts

I went back to the GI specialist at St. Mike's today. I discussed with him the controversy as to whether budesonide is gluten-free or not. He seemed to be certain that it was gluten-free. I guess I will trust him - I will find out soon enough whether it contains gluten as I will have a rather quick reaction if it does - starting with the burning of my lips and throat ( the start of much worse symptoms, of course....)

I am going to fill out the prescription tomorrow and start taking it. We shall see if there is any improvement.....

Have a wonderful day, everyone!!!
