Fecal calprotectin (FC) Test for Rosacea


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin


"Although a relatively new test, faecal calprotectin is regularly used as indicator for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) during treatment and as diagnostic marker....Most importantly, intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin included) increases calprotectin values, possibly due to the associated induced enteropathy." [1]

A paper concluded, "The measurement of FC may be useful in the early detection of gastrointestinal system (GIS) diseases that may accompany rosacea and may provide a pathway to develop treatment strategies targeting both skin and intestinal mucosa.
