Hello, I had the fecal calprotectin test done this summer. The result was 107. I know that it said the limit was 50 and above 50 was more than IBS.
Well, I was happy to think finally something shows, here is proof. When my GI discussed the results with me, he dismissed the 107 as being anything important. He said he thought that anything can make it show inflammation.
Well, hello, this really bothers me. Why have me take this test if you don't rely on what it says. Now I know, for IBD you would be looking at large numbers, much much higher. However, should my 107 value be dismissed?
Has anyone had experience with this?
He told me to get a second opinion for everything overall, but I am dragging my feet. However, yesterday I went to the grocery store and thought we were going to have clean up on aisle 5.
Sigh any thoughts?
