Bowel symptoms like bloating, stomach pain and diarrhoea are common and can really interfere with your life. On top of that, you worry about what’s causing them. A lot of the time, these symptoms are caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). However, sometimes gut symptoms can be caused by inflammation in the bowel – a condition called inflammatory bowel disease.

It's often difficult to tell the difference between IBS and inflammatory bowel disease based on symptoms alone, so guidelines recommend taking a calprotectin stool test to rule out inflammation.

Low calprotectin levels means there's no gut inflammation and your symptoms are more likely to be caused by IBS. If your calprotectin level is high, then there may be inflammation in the bowel causing symptoms. In these cases, it's often useful to do further tests like a colonoscopy to look inside the bowel with a camera. As you can imagine, that’s not the kind of procedure you want to have if a quick test can rule it out!

Your result will come with your actual calprotectin level, recommendations on how to interpret your level from one of our doctors and a formal lab report you can download to share with your doctor if necessary.
