I was told I had diverticular colitis but my asca was 129, which is way over the cut off for crohn's. My doctor wants to do another scope and ct scan. Getting them done next mont when new insurance kicks in. However, my doc feels these tests often muddy the water of diagnosis. I take it that means sometimes it correlates with the diagnosis and other times it doesn't. So, I don't know what it all means. I read somewhere that the asca can be positive if you have celiac. Has anyone else heard this?
My insurance covered my test. I think I owed $65 afterwards.
