I think your physician would be tapering off the Azaron very soon. However, it seems that some form of immunosuppressive treatment like cyclophosphamide or steroids or Azoran ( in very low doses) would be required to maintain this stage of remission.
Please continue with the dietary changes and other medications like Amlong and Telma as suggested by your physician. These would continue lifelong.
Hope this helps
