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!
