Please see the below results and any input in appreciated. It appears that he is reacting to EVERYTHING..we are definetly going to be cutting out gluten but how do we address the other issues? Is the fact that the gluten number a lot higher indicate that the gluten reaction is more severe? He has had a positive skin test to pork but it is showing as the least reactive? He also had a positive skin test to egg in the past but didnt at his last allergy appointment.

 

A + C) Comprehensive Gluten/Antigenic Food Sensitivity Stool Panel
(Combines Panels A and C at a discounted price)

Mean Value 11 Antigenic Foods      24 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA      149 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-casein (cow’s milk) IgA      53 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-ovalbumin (chicken egg) IgA      36 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-soy IgA      45 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

 

While all of the foods tested can be immune-stimulating, the hierarchy of reactions detected were as follows:

Food toward which you displayed most immunologic reactivity: Oat, Rice, Cashew, Corn
Food toward which you displayed intermediate reactivity: Walnut, Beef, Almond, Tuna
Food toward which you displayed least immunologic reactivity: Chicken, White potato, Pork

Within each class of foods to which you displayed multiple reactions, the hierarchy of those reactions detected were as follows:

Grains:
Grain toward which you displayed the most immunologic reactivity: Oat
Grain toward which you displayed intermediate immunologic reactivity: Rice
Grain toward which you displayed the least immunologic reactivity: Corn

Meats:
Meat toward which you displayed the most immunologic reactivity: Beef
Meat toward which you were next most immunologically reactive: Tuna
Meat toward which you displayed intermediate immunologic reactivity: Chicken
Meat toward which you displayed the least immunologic reactivity: Pork

Nuts:
Nut toward which you displayed the most immunologic reactivity: Cashew
Nut toward which you displayed intermediate immunologic reactivity: Walnut
Nut toward which you displayed the least immunologic reactivity: Almond

Nightshades:
You displayed immunologic reactivity to white potato, the member of the nightshade family usually consumed most often and in greatest quantities. While this does not necessarily mean you would react to all other nightshade foods (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant), it is possible. In the realm of elimination diets for immunologic disorders, nightshades are usually eliminated as the entire food class (i.e., all four previously mentioned foods in this class). This is especially important to the clinical setting of arthritis.

 

Thanks again!

Just curious why you went for Enterolab over getting a doctor to order a Celiac blood panel?

We did take him to pediatric gi doc who ran blood tests and the results were negative. Doc said under 3 that blood results are not very accurate so we decided on enterolab. Gi doc did diganose with carbohydrate malapsorption issue.

Welcome to the board.

 

I've heard that enerolab tends to have a very high positive rate on its tests... many people take those rsults with a grain of salt since I don't think they are medically recognized as accurate. The only way you'll know for sure is if your try eliminating them I guess.

 

How many things did they test you against? I wonder because if it is not many then the wording is misleading. For instance, if they only only tested three nuts, then all they did was rank your reactivity. they did not say whether it was an abnormal reaction or whether it is all withing normal range. For example, if told to rank animal speed and you only tested a catepillar, a beetle and a mouse; the catepillar is slow, beetle is intermediate speed and the mouse is fastest.... It's not a good representaion of all animal speeds - what about cheetahs or slugs?  KWIM? The bottom tests don't look like very useful tests.... were they actually allergy tests or sensitivity tests?

 

Good luck with the gluten-free diet.
