Are My Results Bad?
0

6 posts in this topic

I just got my results back for "Gluten/Antigenic Food Sensitivity Stool/Gene Panel" by EnteroLab. Here are my results:

 

Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA      25 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)
Fecal Anti-ovalbumin (chicken egg) IgA      15 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)
Fecal Anti-soy IgA      15 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)
HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1      0301   
HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2      0301   
Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ   3,3  (Subtype 7,7)

 

Should I be worried about my results? Does this mean I have to STRICTLY avoid gluten, egg and soy, or just LIMIT them in my diet? Thank you so much. This is all new to me and I'm very nervous.

 

Thanks,

Cirene

Thanks for your response. Which tests are very reliable & accurate? I would like to determine if I have any sensitivities or allergies to gluten, soy, egg and milk. Thank you!!!

Currently, there are no valid tests for gluten sensitivity. 

 

There are tests for celiac disease. (which is NOT an allergy )

 

There are skin pricks tests that can be done by certified allergists to determine if you have allergies.

:( I guess just a trial of gluten free, "am I feeling better", etc... is the best way. Thanks for your help!

The usual blood tests for celiac disease are:

ttg IgG and ttg IgA

DGP IgA and DGP IgG

EMA IgA 

total serum IgA

AGA IgA and AGA IgG (these are older tests and not used as often now)

 

Go to your family doctor and request these tests before you go gluten-free. Once you are gluten-free the tests will probably be negative even if you are a celiac. Aftyer your testing is done, if it's negative, try a gluten-free trial for at least 3 months; if you have improved health on the gluten-free diet, then you are non-celiac gluten intolerant (NCGI). There are no blood tests for NCGI, nor any other "accepted" tests.

 

Good luck!

    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
