    Yeah, mine was highly elevated. i was so glad i could prove I have an inflammation in my gut without doing a colonoscopy. But i still dont know where it comes from or how to treat it.Sorry, cant tell you who offers this test, but its a simple stool test.

    Thanks bedman. A few study suggest taking bifidubactirium lactis( bb 12) for elevated calprotectin.
