Hi Saraeli,elevated eosinophils are not a reliable test to diagnose crohns. Allergies, including food allergies, fungal infections, adrenal issues & a list of many other things can cause them to be elevated.
An elevated CRP means there is inflammation somewhere in the body, but it doesn't tell where the inflammation is located. Again not a test to diagnose crohns disease. My gi doesn't do this test on me, I have other conditions that can cause inflammation, so it will not tell him anything definitive.
Some of the typical symptoms of crohns is recurrent diarrhea, often bloody diarrhea, constipation with blood, stomach pain with cramping, fever, unexplained weight loss & reduced appetite. When these symptoms hit they are pretty much constant, not associated with eating.
Having upper & lower scopes with biopsies are necessary to get a diagnosis. The dr has a visual of things inside & pathology report is vital also.
