just wanting some advice on calprotectin and mucus in stool
first started noticing white stringy mucus in February, took a calprotectin test and it came back at 940, they started me on clipper and suppositories and it then went back down to 4 on the next stool sample (even though I was still getting lower right discomfort and still seeing mucus)
I've taken another sample in last week to see whats going on and if things are still in control and its come back at 123. she said the normal levels go up to 50 but they just said to repeat in a month. They don't seem concerned at all and said some people with iBD always will have a slightly raised level and sometimes just see more mucus, and could even be IBS. Just wondered what peoples normal levels were and if mucus can just be a normal thing?
they've ruled out anything serious as they said calrotectin would be a lot higher and wouldn't have gone back down, plus a colonoscopy 2 years ago was all clear plus recent bloods were normal too, so don't think they seem concerned
any advice would be great please
