The other expert has opted out.

A colonoscopy can detect many different conditions, and with the blood tests, the primary concern that they are likely considering would be inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. A colonoscopy also can detect various anatomic abnormalities, such as vascular malformations or congenital diveriticuli.

a positive centromere indicates crest syndrome, but doctors seem surprised that it goes negative sometimes. is it common for someone to have positive anti centromere and no have crest syndrome? and is it common for anticentromere to go back and forth between positive and negative?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

ACA can be positive with conditions other than CREST syndrome, such as primary biliary cirrhosis, and even occasionally in someone with lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. It is not common for it to fluctuate between positive and negative, which is why your doctors are surprised.

what could it usually mean when they r going positive and negative
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

It does not usually mean anything. The positive result would need to be interpreted in the context of other findings, regardless of whether it is also sometimes negative.

what are the differences between a ugi series and a colonoscopy? do they both show the same things? and why would crowns disease stop someone from getting a gastric bypass?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

These are separate questions and would need to be asked in a different thread.

how does it require a different thread? we were talking about colonoscopies and i am asking a colonoscopy gi question
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

You asked what could be found on a colonoscopy other than colon cancer and that question has been answered. Understanding an UGI does not alter or clarify the answer to the original question. Therefore, it is a separate question and should be on a different thread.

if we are talking about intestinal problems and how to find them, and you tell me a colonoscopy can determine crohns disease it is not separate to ask the differences between a colonoscopy and ugi. i payed to ask you unlimited questions within the same topic and you are just saying you want more money for no reason and that is not right. i would appreciate it if you would answer my question
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

No. If you have paid for a subscription that allows unlimited questions, there will not be an additional charge for a new question in a different thread, but the expert payment mechanism is based on answers to separate questions, so we are instructed to tell customers to post separate questions in different threads.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Most experts are flexible, and in fact, I answered a couple of additional questions in this thread, but it is time to start a new thread.

everytime i have ever been referred to another specialist, they shortly responded. did u actually refer me to someone else?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

No. I told you that I opted out, but whether another expert responds is up to that expert.

And I can see that you asked another expert to opt out on another question at the same time that you asked me to do so, and no expert has responded in that question either.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
