Hi!
I assume you had an antibody test for Crohn’s or may be a genetic test for Crohn’s. Both these tests are not conclusive—in the sense—a positive test does not mean you have Crohn’s and a negative test does not rule out Crohn’s. A GI endoscopy, barium meal and follow through and video capsule endoscopy are more definitive in diagnosis. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
