Hello Muhammad Ichsan,
Fecal calprotectin test in feces (stool) is a biochemical examination to detect levels of protein calprotectin in the stool. Increased calprotectin indicates the migration of neutrophils (types of white blood cells) to the intestinal lining that can occur due to inflammation in the digestive tract. Some of these diseases cause inflammation in the digestive tract that can cause increased levels of fecal calprotectin:
Inflammatory bowel disease (Chron's disease, ulcerative colitis)
Cystic gastrointestinal fibrosis
False-positive results can arise from the use of previous NSAIDS / NSAIDs. Fecal calprotectin levels will generally return to normal if the inflammation process in the gastrointestinal tract has been resolved by addressing the cause of the inflammation. Treatment of the above diseases are generally different, you can consult further about the right diagnosis with the doctor who treats you, so that appropriate treatment can be given.
Changing dietary patterns and the following tips can help reduce the process of inflammation of the digestive tract, among others
Consumption of omega 3 fats
Reducing food intake with high sugar content
Avoiding alcohol consumption
Avoiding unnecessary consumption of NSAID drugs
Manage stress well
Consumption of probiotics (Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium)
Meet the daily needs of vitamins A, D, E, K
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
