Strange IBD blood test results

I had this blood panel done (mostly out of curiosity). I do suffer from chronic constipation, but I absolutely have *none* of the symptoms of Crohns.

The lab who did the test, came back with a diagnosis of Crohns (and not ulcercolits).

Given that clinically I dont have Crohn’s, I feel like this panel might be picking up on something going on in my immune system–I’m going to ask to have my son have this blood panel done as well.

What do you think of these results, in absence of any clinical Crohn’s disease? What do the mutations mean? (Why is one you’re supposed to have the mutation, so it’s marked as abnormal that I don’t have it?)

Thanks again for everything 🙂

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
