Hi,Hello. I am due to have a colonoscopy in 2 weeks, but I am just curious, would IBS give a reading of 255+ or is it ONLY IBD that have elivated readings? Thank you
Lynda, can you call your doctor's office and ask if they have any cancellations before April 3rd if they can write you in? I hope you feel better soon.Thank you for your reply. I just called my Gastroenterologist office and the receptionist went into my computer file and told me that the test they performed on my stool was the calprotectin level test and that my number is 694. I have been sick since 1997 and I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2006. The only medication I take at this time is Cholestyramine Powder, at one time I was taking Lialda also. Now that I know my number is so high I'm really worried, I cannot see the nurse practitioner for over 2 weeks. Last night I actually spent an entire hour thinking about food that I would like to eat and I mean by that solid food. Today I will go buy liquid foods and I will eat them until April 3rd. This is a really sad day because I'm starving and I am not looking forward to the possibility of having another colonoscopy. Thanks for listening and thank you for your support. Lynda.
