In brief: Endoscopy w/ biopsy

Clinical history, signs, symptoms, bloodwork and imaging can all be suggestive of ibd; but proper diagnosis is made after endoscopy with histology.

In brief: See your doctor

A physical examination by your doctor is a place to start.
Sometimes an x-ray such as small bowel series, and referral to a gastroenerologist for endoscopy and/or colonoscopy with biopsies may be indicated.
