Hi I am new to the board. I have had digestive issues for about 3 months which consists of stomach aches and pains, excessive belching, gnawing pain in my upper abdomen and excessive gas (which I thought was IBS) I found out through my functional medicine doctor that I have a mildly elevated Calprotectin level of 98. It's my understanding that a normal level is 50 or below. 51 to 120 is considered borderline IBD. I am having a hard time understanding this all. My doctor said Calprotecin testing is used to find inflammation in the gastrointestional tract. My doctor also told me that most doctors wouldn't even really consider this to be an issue since it's only "slightly" elevated. I have no idea and am really confused. I go in for a colonoscopy in August. Does anyone have any experience with this? Also, I am supposed to be following a Paleo type diet to reduce inflammation. Does anyone have suggestions on foods to stay away? I am having a hard time determining what foods don't cause me a problem.
