Can Eosinophilic Enteritis cause IBS?

About 4 months ago I did a colonoscopy and endoscopy. My doctor found a high level of eosinophil on my small intestine and told me that I have eosinophilic enteritis caused by food intolerance and that high level of eosinophil cause the intestine to flare up resulting to IBS. Is it true that IBS can be caused by that? How do i know that I don’t have IBD? I also tested my fecal calprotectin and the result was 1883 which is high but I don’t have any stomach ache or feel bloated at all. Is it ok for the calprotectin to be that high? Thanks.

    @vincenraymond,

    Thank you so much for the excellent question. Unfortunately, those of us on staff are not physicians and are unable to responsibly answer a question this clinical in nature. If your current doctor does not have the answers you are looking for, perhaps a second opinion? Please let us know what you find out and remember we are here for your support. -Todd, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team
