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

Not sure Enterolab test results mean anything. Sorry you spent the money.

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!
