Overview

There are no specific blood tests for ischemic colitis, but an elevated white blood cell count may be present. Other laboratory findings in ischemic colitis include electrolyte and renal abnormalities secondary to dehydration, metabolic acidosis, and lactate level may be elevated due to any tissue hypoxia.

Laboratory Findings

The laboratory findings for ischemic colitis are as follows:[1][2][3]
