Labs to Diagnose & Monitor Crohn's or Colitis Activity
Editor's note: For World IBD Day 2019, community members submitted questions for Dr. Nandi. This video was recorded by Dr. Nandi on World IBD Day and was published at a later date.
One of the community's questions asked was, "Are there certain labs to diagnose inflammatory bowel disease?"
Short of a scope, there are several lab tests including markers of systemic inflammation, iron deficiency and stool markers of gut inflammation. Dr. Nandi elaborates in more detail in the video below!
How open are you about being diagnosed with IBD?
