I’m 50yrs old and recently saw my GP because of ongoing bowel issues - constipation, mucus in bowel movements etc. He got me to do a stool sample and my Calprotectin level came back very high at over 1800! Normal is under 50. Dr then sent me for a colonoscopy that showed nothing wrong except Diverticulosis. I know a reading that high is usually indicative of IBD but colonoscopy didn’t show anything sinister. I feel fine at the mo. I’m just so confused why the stool sample showed that very high level. What could have caused that to happen? GP is now away for 2 weeks. So i’m unable to discuss it with him. Has anyone else had such a high reading and everything has been ok? I know it’s not normal.
