I am a 52 year old woman. I am 5 3 and 240 lbs. I went to the emergency room today due to constant diarrhea that I have been having for several months. I had lab work done and it showed that my Fecal Lactoferrin test was POS (A). The doctor in the emergency room said that my blood work looked good and told me to follow up with my primary care physician. But, the Fecal Lactoferrin test was listed as abnormal on my paperwork. What does this test mean? Should I be concerned?

I ve had a virus like flu for two weeks. It then went into my respiratory system. Now I also have diarrhea. I had a stool test today and as I look online at the results it reads: Stool Lactoferrin (LAB)      Positive NEGATIVE     Abnormal Doc says probably related to the other, but I was worried about the abnormal label I just saw.
