Inflammatory Bowel Disease Mmr Vaccine
Doubtful: Patients with inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's and ulcerative colitis which has already been diagnosed are at high risk for complications from vaccine preventable diseases and should be fully vaccinated. Special schedules for live vaccine administration are followed for those on immunosuppressive therapy. It is not been proven that vaccines CAUSE inflammatory bowel diseases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
Generally yes: Inflammatory bowel disease (crohns and ulcerative colitis) are generally considered to be chronic diseases and generally require lifelong treatment. The disease can become less active over time and ultimately some patients may be able to stop therapy. Some crohn's disease is very mild and patients will go for years before seeking treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: Inflammatory bowel disease includes crohn's and ulcerative colitis. Crohn's has the potential of being a lifelong disease as it can involve any portion of the GI tract from mouth to anus. Ulcerative colitis only involves the colon; thus worse case scenario, removing the entire colon is a cure. See a GI doctor/colorectal surgeon for more details. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Almost anyone: About 15% of close relatives of crohn's patients carry genes that predispose to this inflammatory bowel disease. Also, ethnic origin and environment (including infectious and antigenic exposure as well as tobacco) play roles in disease emergence and "flaring." keep in mind that ibd can present in young, middle aged, or elderly, and almost anywhere and in any population around the world. ...Read more
Some vaccines contain saccharomyces cerivisiae. Could they cause u 2 form anti-saccharomyces cerivisiae antibodies, thus inducing Crohn's disease?
Probably not.: First of all, most vaccines don't go anywhere near the yeast, only recombinant vaccines use it. Secondly, the vaccines are purified , and the amounts of actual saccharomyces in the vaccine are very small, compared to the relatively huge amounts of the yeast in the bowel. So the likelihood of this being a problem is tiny. ...Read more
Gastroenterologist: The most important thing is to know that ibd is a treatable condition. It is best managed by a gastroenterologist who can discuss medications, dietary management and lifestyle to deal with this diagnosis as you go forward. ...Read more

Workup and Mgt: There are many PIDs and some are associated with autoimmune disease. Since there is so much variation, the diagnosis can be difficult. If you are prone to infections, the pattern of the infections, type and location will help your physician determine the diagnosis and treatment. If you have lung involvement, an HRCT is helpful. Most PIDs involve B cells and I would advise B cell studies. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What tests (beside TB test) and vaccinations are needed before starting first time remicade (infliximab) fusion for left-sided ulcerative colitis? Mmr vaccine?
Check hepatitis B: The risk of reactivation of tuberculosis and hepatitis b when taking Remicade (infliximab) obligates pre-treatment testing. Live vaccines can not be accepted while on the drug. Your doctor will no doubt be candid when discussing all the risks of "biologic treatment"--please discuss these with him before initiating this very efficacious and generally well-tolerated drug class. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: Crohn's disease is not an infectious disease. That being said you can have a GI tract infection on top of the crohn's especially if you have been treated with antibiotics and this infection can be contagious from contact with your stool. In general the gas or flatus should not be able to spread any infection without direct stool contact. ...Read more
Can MMR vaccine on earth cause inflammatory bowel disease? I've read from several articles that say it can. Please tell me docs and thanks.
Fraudulent study: Wakefield,a British GI doc studied some autistic kids sent to him by attorneys who funded his work. He published a brief report in the LANCET, trying to associate the MMR with enlarged lymph nodes in the bowel wall and implicated the MMR in autism.In a major court case his work was found to be bogus, fradulent.Lancet retracted the paper,he lost his medical license and left Britain.All a fraud. ...Read more
16 year old daughter has Crohn's disease on Imuran and Pentasa (mesalamine). Is it safe to get the MMR vaccine.
No: There was a small study many years ago funded ( fraudulently not disclosed) by the anti vaccine lobbyist lawyers which resulted in some suggestion of this. It was later retracted by the Lancet when this was disclosed. Many subsequent years of global research has not shown any association. Many children have died from the devastating effects of this misinformation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have the mumps and my daughter is 8 and a half months.will she get the mumps too? she still didn't get the MMR vaccine
I had measles as a child (rubella & reg) yet turned up w/ no immunity on work bloodwork. How could that be? Gave me MMR vaccine am i know immune?
I heard that the MMR vaccine is a live shedding virus. Is this true and if so should I keep my unvaccinated baby away from those recently vaccinated?
I've had the MMR vaccine 3 times, and my bloodwork says I'm still not immune. Normal? Should i try the needle again? can I work in a hospital still?
MMR immunity: While your situation is not normal, it's not abnormal either. Some people just do not respond and build antibodies to certain vaccines. You could try one more time, but I doubt it will make much difference. We see this situation a couple of times a year when mom's who have had the vaccine test non-immune with their prenatal panels. You should be fine to work in a hospital, but make employer aware ...Read more
Can the rubella vaccine cause autism? I’ve heard stories about the MMR vaccine, which includes rubella, can cause
autism or other problems. Is there any evidence that this could be true?
In : In 1998, a doctor by the name of andrew wakefield published a study in the lancet journal implicating a relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Wakefield's study was found to be fraudulent, the data was manipulated and the study was retracted by the lancet in 2004. Dr. Wakefield even had his medical license revoked for unethical practices. After this study was published in 1998, it spurred tons of research looking in to whether the relationship between vaccines and autism could be true. There have been well over 100 large-scale studies and evidence reviews looking at the relationship between vaccines and autism and every single one of those studies has shown that vaccines (including the mmr) do not cause autism. Below, i've linked to 3 websites that discuss this controversy and the research involved in-depth. I will also add that i vaccinated my own child on the schedule recommended by the center for disease control and american academy of pediatrics without any hesitation. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
No waiting: As long as you feel well, you can do your usual workout. Some feel keeping the arm that was "shot up" active lessens next day soreness. Keep hydrated. Only limit yourself if you are running a fever, and listen to your body if tired or sore--take a rest day if feeling unwell. ...Read more
Doses are same but:: About 5% of people don't respond to 1st dose of mmr. The reason for the second dose is to catch those non responders & give them a chance to develop an immune response to measles, mumps and rubella too. It also appears that seeing the MMR vaccine a second time may, in fact, stimulate (somewhat) a better antibody build up in those who were able to react the first time around so 2 doses best for all. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
