venice-boy replied to venice-boy's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptomsthank you to everybody to answer!! did you make only test for celiac or also the other test?becouse I write to enterolab.com and they write me: The most comprehensive panel we offer for the diagnosis of Celiac Disease is the gluten sensitivity stool and gene panel complete for $369. Of course, if you already know what genes you have, then you may only need the gluten sensitivity stool panel complete for $249. Which tests do you suggest me to do? I read the enterolab website but(maybe for my not optimal english) I didn't understand a few of things.During the travel can my stools lose their chimic and pysical properties?Are there any expecial way to send the stools? Is Milk Sensitivity Stool Test Free inclused in $249 (or $369) ? (I read in the site that : EnteroLab is offering the Milk Sensitivity Stool Test Free when you order the Gluten Sensitivity Stool and Gene Panel Complete).what about yeast, egg and casein tests?If I want them must I to pay also other $99+$199=$298 ? thank you ps:for CarlaB: Venice is the most beautiful city in the world,you need to visit it!!! for greengirl:I live 5 minuts from the train station!! It's typical for turists to lose the train and to sleep there!! another thing for CarlaB:what does "gaunt" mean?No dictionary has it!!!
venice-boy posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptomshally to everybody!!Excuse me for my english and for the mistakes in this topic! I'm a italian boy(26 years old) that from 7 years fights with the IBS(Irritable bowel syndrome ),with the classical symptoms (abdominal pain, diarrhoea,fatigue,headache,dermatit ecc). I made all the possible exams(gastroscopy,colonscopy,blood exam,but there was nothing) . I made also the classical blood tests for celiac(also HLA genetic test) but thay was negative (and gastroscopy,the villi was good) . I read in this days that it's possible that the peaple has a sort of "Gluten Sensitivity" (you can see http://enterolab.com/StaticPages/EarlyDiagnosis.htm ) with negative blood tests and gastroscopy. my question are: 1)Is it possible to have this sensibility also with negative HLA test?(I write my tests at the end of this massege) 2)What do you think of stool tests of dottor Fine? ( www.enterolab.com ). are they good? did someone make this tests?was everybody positive or someone was negative? did you make only test for celiac or also the ther test? thank you to everybody venice-boy Ps:this are my celiac tests(they are in italian but the scientific words are very similar to english words): Ricerca aac anti endomisio-IGA(if):negativa Dosaggio anticorpi anti-gliadina (elisa): ac anti gliadina IgG 4.5 U/mL adulti<30 ac anti gliadina IgA 5.0 U/mL adulti<15 Dosaggio anticorpi anti transglutaminasi(elisa) Anticorpi Iga 6.0 U/ml (0-25) genetic test: RISULTATO DEL TEST PER LA RICERCA IN BIOLOGIA MOLECOLARE DELL’ASSOCIAZIONE COL MORBO CELIACO(il test è specifico e ricerca gli eterodimeri HLA di II classe più frequentemente associati alla malattia celiaca): Risultato: presenza dell’eterodimero DQB1*0201/DQA1*0501 NO presenza dell’eterodimero DQB1*0202/DQA1*0201 NO presenza dell’eterodimero DQB1*0302/DQA1*03 NO
