The Calprotectin Stool Test that NutriPATH offers is used to detect inflammation in the intestines. Intestinal inflammation can be associated with bacterial infections and in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The calprotectin test may be used to distinguish between IBD and non-inflammatory disorders and to monitor IBD disease activity.

Testing for faecal calprotectin is a useful screening tool for identifying patients who are most likely to have an endoscopy for suspected inflammatory bowel disease.
 

The main diseases that cause an increased excretion of faecal calprotectin are infectious colitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and neoplasms (cancer). Essentially, an elevated calprotectin indicates that inflammation is likely present in the gastrointestinal tract.
