Just returned from my gastroenterologist and received the diagnosis of Crohns Disease. I’ve been having my bloodwork come back as me being anemic for some time. Had a 2nd colonoscopy, a endoscopy with negative results. Then had a pill camera endoscopy (forgot what the real term is) and it indicated a couple of areas in the small intestine that had been bleeding at one time or another. So then they did a stool test which was normal and then a Prometheus test that came back as Crohn’s disease. So I’ll be checking the forums here to learn everything I can.

Keep an eye on your blood levels. I had colitis but with the perpetual diarrhea I didn’t realize I was passing blood. Ended up needing 23 pints before I had a collectomy.
