Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
IgA level is raised in crohns and decreases in colitis.However it doesn't help in determining prognosis or treatment response.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
