Despite ct,blood and stool test,flex sig and colonoscopy w/biopsies, doc still cn't say if it's UC or CD.  What is the dye test you speak of?  Is it definitive?

The only test I have heard of is the  The Sabin-Feldman dye test. It is a laboratory tests for the diagnosis of Toxoplasmosis.

A single-celled parasite called Toxoplasma gondii causes a disease known as toxoplasmosis.

Toxoplasma infection, however, should be considered in patients with Crohn's disease who are over 40 years old, and who present with nonspecific signs of intercurrent infection.

I am not sure if this is the dye test your referring to.  Hopefully someone else has better info for you.

Hope you find your answer.  Take care
