If ESR is not accurate, then what lab test should I need for monitoring my inflammation in the colon?

If ESR is not accurate, then what lab test should I need for monitoring my inflammation in the colon?

The labs done for inflammatory bowel disease are proliferating and folks still argue about them. An occasional CBC will pick up early anemia, and chemical profile alert may alert with a low Albumin or low serum iron / high tibc. But no lab will ever take the place of "how do you feel? " stay pro-active! ...Read more

Doctor found a polyp in my bowel, I'm 26 they took it out. No Colon CA in family? They didn't find any inflammation disease, how could I have this?

Any adenoma?: Sometimes there are normal findings identified at colonoscopy that can form a small bump resembling a polyp. These will often be removed to make sure they are not a precancerous polyp. If the pathology report does not mention an adenoma or hyperplastic polyp, it may not be a true polyp at all. You can follow up with your doctor regarding the results of the biopsy. ...Read more
