Why has my Gastroenterologist diagnosed me with IBS when my Calprotectin level is 1700?

Health problems for about a year, bowels struggling to move, not typical constipation (stools are soft), blood and mucous in them, only diarrhoea and faecal incontinence on a couple of occasions. Nausea, headaches, tiredness, dizzy turns, aching thighs, swollen abdomen, but no pain or stomach cramps. I just don't understand how my Gastroenterologist can be sitting looking at a Calprotectin level of 1700 and say in her opinion I have IBS. No other tests so far have shown any possible cause of symptoms. I eat a very healthy diet.

Any help much appreciated.
