IBS? IBD? or worse?
Hi all - I have been suffering from IBS-like symptoms for over a year now. Recently blood tests were done and all resulted OK. These tests included CBC, WCC, RCC, Hgb, Hct, MCV, MCH, MCHC, neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, basophils, ESR, C-reactive protein, Anti tissue transglutaminase lgA/IgG.
So from the blood work side I am clear. Now a test remains and its the Fecal Calprotectin - it measures the level of inflammation (if any).
My question is this: Do doctors use this test to differentiate from IBS to IBD? for what else do they do this test? - my doctor is quite reserved and doesn't let out much and it worries me
