What do you know about it first, then tell me your question about it
It's a problematic test. The sensitivity and specificity aren't all that high, so, for example, 23% of people positive for Crohn's with the test don't have Crohn's, and 30% of the people who negative for Crohn's actually do have Crohn's
You obviously know more about it than you indicated at first. Let's cut to the chase--what exactly was the point of your question?
So have you had it? Sometimes getting the necessary information from you is like pulling hen's teeth
No, not that specific test but why are you asking about it now?
We've gone over this time and time again and you know full well I don't know why your GI doesn't think you have it
Yes and you're making me repeat myself for at least the fourth time
Why exactly did you bother to open this page?
I'm not being rude if I just state the facts. It's not a question of not helping you. I think you have Crohn's and I've said that several times. It's just that so far on this page we haven't moved an inch forward in the discussion about Crohn's.
All I'm going to say is with your history, symptoms and testing so far--including the genetetic tests-- I think you definitely have Crohn's. There's really no need to go any further
That means you likely have Crohn'ss but it has to be taken in context along with your history and physical symptoms
No--for now just have him go over all your previous workup
Anything's possible but it wouldn't be able to grow to the size that would cause symptoms in that short a period of time
Yes I'm sure.
Time to close this page
We've covered two topics here. And we've gone over and over about your digestive problems so basically I just don't have anything useful to add
That's something you ask a lot, but ok--just one and just one answer
Can you at least tell me where it's from?
Looks like a patch of eczema but it could also be ringworm
