  1. Updated....realized I didn't actually include the information from the test....
  2. Primarily because from searching around the internet, it sounded as though blood tests were not as reliable (a link from an article on this site) and in my mind it did seem reasonable that if there was an issue with something related to the antibodies in the digestive tract, it made more sense to look there before those made their way into the blood stream. In my case, I don't think the test showed a positive for Celiac, which I'm quite happy about. With regard to everyone getting a positive result from Enterolab, I think a reasonable answer might be that individuals who have symptoms which align with gluten intolerance/sensitivity are the ones requesting the test. Could there be false positives? Possible. From my readings, I've seen a lot of information about false negatives from blood tests as well. If the results from the stool testing had indicated Celiac then my next step would have been to move to the blood testing and/or the biopsy testing.
  3. Morning All, While using my limited Google-Fu skills to find a way of deciphering the results of my Enterolab stool testing, I saw several results pointing me to this forum. While I consider myself a reasonable intelligent person, this seems sort of Greek to me so, I thought I'd try to ask someone who might be more of a 'subject matter expert'. If I'm reading this correctly, I do not really have Celiac disease but, I do have sensitivity to both gluten and eggs (the later completely threw me for a loop!) - am I correct in my understanding? I also don't know if I really understand the genetic results but, again, sounds like I do not have the genes for Celiac but, do have two genes which indicate a predisposition to gluten sensitivity, does that sound right? Any input or guidance would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to be able to explain this to my other half who's pretty much said he won't be changing the way he cooks, with regard to the elimination of gluten, until I can show him there's a legitimate reason why he should (e.g., results showing that I have a sensitivity to wheat products). Thanks in advance for your time and information! Best, C. Edit - Realized I never included the actual results.... Gluten/Antigenic Food Sensitivity Stool/Gene Panel Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA 13 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units) Fecal Anti-casein (cow’s milk) IgA 7 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units) Fecal Anti-ovalbumin (chicken egg) IgA 13 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units) Fecal Anti-soy IgA 4 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units) HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0301 HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0609 Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 3,1 (Subtype 7,6) I wasn't sure if the narrative bits were also important to include but if so, please let me know and I'll happily update the information.
