I've been waiting for my biopsy results since my colonoscopy on May 17th. My doctor suspects Crohn's or UC because I have a multitude of IBD symptoms, and my colonoscopy showed some rectal inflammation.
In the meantime, while waiting on the biopsy results, some blood work has come back abnormal. I was hoping you guys could let me know if the results that I had are common with Crohn's patients, or if you have had similar results. So here they are:
1.) Iron Deficiency
I know that this is very common with IBD. It has been a chronic problem for me, and I had to get an iron infusion last year.
2.) Vitamin D Deficiency
This has also been a chronic problem for me.
3.) High IgE
Normal Range: <114 Mine: 335
4.) Low PTH (Parathyroid Hormone)
I'm not sure about the normal range, but he said mine was very low at 5.
That is all I have right now. Any insights or experiences would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.
