Kimmy who is 35 years old presents to the GP surgery. She was discharged from hospital 3 weeks ago after a bout of blood-stained diarrhoea. She was given a diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and treated with Prednisolone and has recovered slowly. She is now opening her bowels twice per day with minimal blood in the stool. She has heard that Prednisolone can cause weight gain and therefore she no longer wishes to continue with this treatment.
What is the next most appropriate step to take?
