My Elisa Food Test For Igg Antibodies Is Back
0

4 posts in this topic

Most everything showed no reaction, but let's look at what showed a reaction.

Low Reaction - Whey (protein in dairy) and Almond

Moderate Reaction - Gliadin (Wheat) and Whole Wheat - Both were closer to High than Low reaction

High Reaction - Gluten (Wheat), and Rye

And what, quite curiously, is missing with regards to reaction. Barley and Oat. Given more info about celiac/gluten and oats not being a problem, I might just have to try an oat that is known for being gluten free (no cross contamination). I thought for sure my reaction to dairy would be higher though, perhaps it's only a lactose reaction or perhaps I'm just sensitive to the low reaction of whey.

It's pretty cool that it matches very well with the data from Enterolab. Being that I showed reaction to gluten, but no reaction to soy, egg, casein in both this test and in the stool test via Enterolab.

It also appears that I might have to give eggs another chance now and test soy again.

Here's info on what all I had tested:

Hey Mikey! He likes it!

Sorry, couldn't resist. :ph34r: But it makes me wonder what Life Cereal is made of...probably gluten.

Hi

I had my IgG test done in the UK - I've got 14 with high reaction (and said to avoid, but can't do all of them at once straight away!), and 13 with a low reaction that I should rotate! More than average apparantly.

Anyway, wheat and gluten/gliadin came up high with me, but barley and rye were in the 'no reaction' column - which was a bit odd. Wasn't til I called the test place (I had mine done at York Test) and had my free 30mins consultation, that the lady said that that is just how they print them, and that I should avoid Barely and Rye too (guess that brings me up to 16 high reactions!) - could your results just be a similar type of thing, being 'written wrongly'?

Hi Sara, I sure hope that they don't make mistakes in writting up lab results. Makes me wonder about the rest of the results and how accurate they are. I suppose I should contact the company to see what they say.

Thanks,

Mike

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
