and do you think it is accurate?? Reason being is DH has been to his Dr. after having a ruptured appendix a few weeks ago, Fast forward, he has some inflamation according to the hospital results from the tests they ran so they send him for further testing, Barium Swallow with lower GI, this blood test and a few others and the Dr. is now telling him he believes he has Crohn's. He has had none of the other symptoms associated with Crohn's and from what we have read about this blood test it is not very accurate either. He has not had a colonoscopy and I am assuming that is the next test on the list but we are both stumped on how he could come up with this diagnosis with none of the other accompanying symptoms. Thanks for any input & assistance.View Thread
