hi everyone im new on here and been having various tests. i started with having bloody diarrhea about 2 yrs ago and had a calprotecin stool test done which showed a result of over 5000. my consultant said its more likely a severe infection as it only lasted about 10 days. ive had the calprotecin test done a few more times and its been normal apart from 1 other time which showed a result of 220. my consultant said it could many things but was 95% certain it wasnt crohns. ive just had the test done again wen i had stomach cramps and the result was 37. on the lab report the comment said a result between 30 and 75 is borderline and that it dont exclude bowel inflammation. it also said the stool sample contained fibrous material and to do test wen having symptoms. does this sound like Crohn's? i know it's normal but doesn't that indicate some inflammation i dont think the doctor will do the test again. my other results have either been less than 15
