  1. Hi. I have been found to have malabsorption (fecal stain with fat and starches). I've lost 15 pounds over the last few years and have low ferritin, BUN. I had a complete workup for celiac including three antiboidies (anti-gluten, antitissue and antiendomysal) and a small bowel biopsy that was negative. My doctor now thinks the malabsorption is due to adrenal exhaustion and candida. However, I am wonderinf if it worth doing the enterlab test. My only worry (besides cost) is that ther may be a high rate of false positives. I would love to hear from others that have done the test. Thank You

  3. Hi, I'm new to this forum...having browsed before but never posted. I have some type of intestinal problem, which the doctors thought was likely celiac (becuase I have autoimmune thyroid disease) Initially, had a salivia IGA test for gluten through diagnos tech that was positive. I also had a fecal fat test that showed I was not properly absorbing or digesting fats and starches. Then, I had antibodies (antitissue, antiendomysal and antigluten) tested through two different labs and they were all normal. I even had a small bowel biopsy which was normal. So, we had concluded that I don't have sprue or gluten sensitivty. But I don't know how to explain my symptoms. I have lost 15 pounds and am underweight despite a healthy diet, have stomach pains, diarrhea and am exhausted. My doctor is puzzled but says that I look healthy and since my weight is currently stable not to worry. I don't feel healthy and would like to be a normal weight for my height. Could I still have gluten sensitivity? I found out about Dr. Fines work through this forum and am considering getting the test. I don't know how reliable it is and if others have found it helpful. It is expensive, and wonder if I should just try the diet? Also,has anyone else had the salvia test from diagnos tech? I know these are many questions... Thank You. I would appreciate any advice.
