Does Celiac Disease Cause Blood In Stool
A long tube runs from the mouth to the anus. It includes, in order, the mouth, throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileus), caecum, the ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid colon (or large intestine) and the rectum. The space inside that tube , the lumen, is considered to be outside of the body. When we bleed into that space ...Read more
Yes stool tested for usual bugs.No inflammation showed in the blood tests. no crohns, IBS, celiac etc. ?
Not sure: how you test for Crohn's, IBS from stools or blood tests. Crohn's is a biopsy pathological diagnosis. IBS is clinical. Celiac disease is the only one you can check a Tissue Transglutaminase Antibodies (tTG-IgA) titer for. What were your symptoms that prompted this work up? And part of the workup should always involve endoscopy. ...Read more
No: I'm confident here. Lyme disease is both a real entity and a "pop" / "fad" diagnosis. There are normally a lot of lymphocytes in the small intestinal mucosa, though having a lot in the epithelium itself is more suggestive of gluten enteropathy or a few other entities. If you've got lab support for your gluten allergy (which also has "pop" proponents), this is your explanation instead. ...Read more
Why does gluten cause some people abdomen discomfort when the blood work for celiacs disease was negative?
Variable: This question is difficult to answer because it really depends on what is being eaten. In general some people "respond" to limiting gluten despite not having the disease because they are now paying attention to food labels. Gluten containing foods tend to be highly refined or processed. So by avoiding these one is eating more real food. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Colitis from low blood flow with ulcers, elev Herat rate blood in stool and dark urine. Is this still IBS?
Probably, UC or ER: Colitis untreated can lead to many complications, including colon cancer. I am hoping a colonoscopy with biopsy has already been done. However, there is no rule that there cannot be more than one process going on, although less likely. There could be viral hepatitis causing dark urine or acute nephritic syndrome with tea-colored urine. The pancreatitis and weight loss is scary in someone so young. ...Read more
Blood yes: Hemorrhoids can bleed - as many internal hemorrhoids to. Internal hemorrhoids are inside and only sometimes come outside. These usually don't hurt but can bleed. Most people with painful hemorrhoids are external hemorrhoids. If you are having mucus, however, there could be something more going on and a rectal exam and possible colonoscopy are critical to further evaluate for other diseases. ...Read more
IBD or IBS: Cramping, pain, loose stools, but not frequently. Possibly small specs of blood in stool rarely. Does this mean Chrohns or IBD over IBS?
Can't tell.: No way to tell from the info. If there is truly blood then IBD must be a consideration, but plenty of people with IBS have blood related to constipation or hemorrhoids or another common cause. Best to see your doc for an exam. The real test is some sort of endoscopy with a direct look at the inside of your intestine and consideration of biopsy. ...Read more

Does blood test from a regular checkup show viral diseases, cancers besides what is in the blood content such as cholesterol?
Specific tests: Each test for a specific chemical, antibody, or other constituent needs to be ordered specifically. There is no one test for cancer and each virus has its own specific test. Cholesterol and lipids should be tested on a fasting specimen. You may consult this site for info in lab tests: http://labtestsonline.org/ ...Read more
Floating stool can be a sign of malabsorption. But wouldnt blood and stool tests point towards this? How does one test for malabsorption?
Stool fat: There are many malabsorption tests. One is a stool 72 hour collection of fat- you collect all the stool and the lab determines how much fat is in the entire collection. Other tests include stool enzymes such as chymotrypsin. A fecal calprotectin may be elevated in patients with crohn's. See your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
Usually occult...: It is usually not "red"-ily visible until late in the disease. Then it can be dark or bright, depending on rate of loss and location of leakage, as tends to darken with more time in GI tract. Also may be associated with narrowed caliber of stool. If concerned, see dr for fecal blood testing & if positive, referral for colonoscopy. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Can malabsorption from small bowel Crohn's decrease sensitivity of IBD blood panel? Wouldn't low serum globulin = fewer antibodies for test 2 detect?
>100,000 proteins: Globulin = total proteins less albumen, the most abundant protein. While globulins includes antibodies, it also includes many other proteins. Within the 5 antibody subclasses (IgM, IgG, IgA, IgE & IgD), with >100,000 specific binding activities for just IgG, the whole point is the ratio of relative targeting specifics, competing physiologic controls & responses. Globulin can be ? & targeting also ? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
