Hi all,
How high have your Calprotectin levels gotten? I am wondering if having something above 10,000 is "normal" for folks in flare with IBD?


Thank you!

I was on here searching for the same question... I just got my results back and it was 5370! Any other time I had a flare it was in the triple digits, but this time has me freaking out surprise I've been in a uc flare since the last month of my pregnancy 9 months ago and am going through biologics currently which are not working.

I was just going to post this question! I am in a flare and mine is just over 2000. I haven't heard from my doc yet and I have no idea what this means in terms of IBD flare
