Why Does Test Show I Have Crohns And The Doctor Says I Have Ibs
I have IBS symptoms, however all of my blood tests and x-rays have came back normal. Do i even have ibs? What should my next step be?
IBS Dx & Tx : Ibs is not defined by blood tests, imaging or other diagnostic tests & most don't need any of these tests. Depending on the specific symptoms, abdominal imaging, endoscopy & stool studies may be needed, not to diagnose ibs, but to rule out other possibilities. Start by educating yourself about ibs, stress reduction & dietary modification http://www.Aboutibs.Org/site/about-ibs/management/ibs-diet. ...Read more

I was told that I have positive ANA results and that i also have protein in my urine. I was referred to see a rheumatology doctor. What does this mean?

However, healthy patients can have positive ANA as well! Your doc is concerned you may have lupus. However, ANA and urine protein tests are very nonspecific, and could mean many things. A rheumatologist will provide more information. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have lots of symptoms that point to coeliac. 3 members of my family have it but my blood tests keep coming back negative. I do think that I have it, what should I do?
Consider biopsy: With the strong family history, your gastroenterologist may be willing to do the biopsy and ask the pathologist to count lymphocytes. I have some reason to think that there are biopsy-demonstrable celiac disease cases for which the antibodies do not turn positive. Your third-party payer may balk but this may not be an unsurmountable problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
