I am not sure if this is the right place for this question but what does a High Chromoganin A, ECL Blood Test (857) mean. I am really concerned. I have never heard of this. Does it have something to do with my digestive system. I can't find an awful lot of info on this

Chromoganin is a 'marker' that is used to check for a variety of different conditions, so it shouldn't be taken 'out of context.' A doc would have to look at a variety to results from different tests to try to find a cause for changes in levels. CgA concentrations may be elevated in conditions involving liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease, renal insufficiency, stress and in tumor formation.
