Overview

Laboratory findings are non specific and do not distinguish Meckel's diverticulum from other sources of gastrointestinal bleeding. Laboratory findings in patients may show volume depletion, features of anemia (such as decreased hematocrit, decreased hemoglobin levels and positive stool guaiac test).
