New Fecal Calprotectin Study - Interesting

Very interesting read.

I find the impact on referral behavior of GP's especially interesting!

Ya know, it seems so simple. This would go far in reducing costs but also reduces the nasty wait to diagnosis. I forget the average but for our kids it was 7, and 5 months from when we started pursuing a diagnosis (not just from symptom onset).
Hopefully this can push a recommendation to let GPs access fcal.

If there is a tech savvy forum person who wants to compile fecal calprotectin studies into a sticky at the top of the page...that might be great.
