Hello Alan,

Thank you for your question.

There's no specific lab to confirm Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis or IBS. It's all about combination of labs, facts, symptoms, clinical presentation and diagnostics.

When checking the blood, many patients with Crohn?s disease have antibodies to certain proteins. The examples would be E.coli (Escherichia Coli), Brewer?s Yeast (Saccharomyces Cerevisiae) and Baker?s Yeast. Most healthy people don?t have those antibodies present in the blood.

There are a few tests to check for gluten sensitivity. This will help to confirm Celiac disease. But not in 100% of the cases. Gluten sensitivity testing is very tricky. And sometimes it may show up as false negative. You may want to get retested if you suspect gluten intolerance and show negative gluten sensitivity test.

If you are looking at your CBC-complete blood count you will find that WBC-white blood count is most likely the first thing you doctor will look at. If it's high then there's an infection or inflammation, or both.

HGB-hemoglobin is the marker for anemia. If it's low, you may need to get iron supplement.

When Alb-Albumin is low this may indicate the need of protein or amino acid supplementation.

If you are interested in a more natural healing, you can contact me and I can send you home based lab kits. These are state of the art modern science advantages for natural treatment options. I had a lot of success helping chronic patients with Functional medicine healing methods and lab testing done at the privacy of your own home.

Best, Inna
