Proteins in stool and related inflammation??

Ok, so if there is evidence of extra proteins in your stool, is it 100% indicative of inflammation? I was told by the doctor and have read it is. I just need to be told again. Guess I'm looking for a way out of all this. Head battered Trying to convince myself nothing is wrong for all I have accompanying symptoms.

I donít know that any test is 100% full proof but both faecal calprotectin and lactoferrin are highly accurate. Naturally it is a test that is specific to the bowel but it does not discriminate as to what is causing the inflammation.
