Enterolab Casein, Soy, Yeast Antibodies

As far as I understand, intolerances are for life. The antibodies should go down if you are not consuming the food in question and not getting trace amounts from cc or other such thing.

I just got tested a few months back so I haven't been retested.

Matilda....I tested neg. for everything but gluten so I cant really answer your question. I was always confused about Enterolab saying all these IgA antibodies are "for life". I havent seen evidence of this anywhere. As far as I know...once a person heals and if there arent other issues to deal with like leaky gut, candida, etc...other food intolerances should go away. They arent allergies....which would be a more permanent thing. Gluten is the intolerance which would be life long....I dont know why Enterolab groups these other food intolerances into the same category....saying that they should be avoided for life in order to prevent further damage?? Since when does an egg intolerance cause the same type of damage as gluten?? I could never wrap my head around this logic. :unsure:

I believe that *while* there is still damage and *while* these intolerances are present due to leaky gut or whatever....then yes, these other food intolerances could keep the intestinal lining inflamed and prevent healing. However, after the intestinal lining is healed and a persons health is restored...I'm pretty sure the intolerances would no longer be an issue because they would no longer be leaking out of the gut and the immune system would have settled down not having all these food proteins to deal with. That was always my belief anyways.

He has lecture notes on his site about gluten antibodies. Basically they go down, but very very slowly. And it does require very good adherence.

Hmmm... just to turn things around on you. Why would you believe that your body would forget about one protein being a foreign invader (lets say casein) before another? In another discussion (autoimmune one) we're having, someone said the body remembers these things for 30 years or more. Basically for life.

Maybe when I've got some spare $$$ I'll test again and see. In the interest of scientificness!

Or maybe I'll just go shoe shopping or something....

:lol::lol:

I know what I would do.....

Nancy,

I think that with a leaky gut the immune system is basically going to be *highly* reactive to all sorts of "invaders". Take away the leaky gut and eventually the immune system is going to calm down and stop fighting all these antigens simply because healing has taken place.

For example....When I was really sick I was reacting to just about every chemical there is...I had to hold my breathe when driving cuz of all the fumes from cars, I was reacting to newspaper ink, carpet fibers, etc. As I improved these things lessened and now I dont react to any of these things...I cant even smell them anymore...whereas before they would overwhelm me. I still react to perfumes and cleaning agents and those types of chemicals but my immune system has recovered somewhat and I'm not reacting to *everything* and to the degree that I once was. Its the same with foods...I can tolerate more now. I dont think its about the immune system *forgetting* necessarily....its more about recovery. My immune system has recovered somewhat and can now tolerate more foreign invaders.

Has anyone who had positive antibodies to casein, soy or yeast from Enterolab retested to see if they go away?

Interesting question, and I'd like to know the answer myself. I never tested positive to the EnteroLab tests, but I do have two genes for gluten intolerance. I was also off dairy and gluten for so long (7 months) before doing the test, I didn't test positive. I would like to try the soy as I recently tested positive for that on a blood test. I guess I'll wait 3 months though soy free. It is expensive, but I'm one of those people who needs the concrete evidence, so it's worth it to me.

Claire

    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
    • You should never have cut out gluten until you had the biopsy done. It's much worse to have to go back on after you've been off gluten for a while. There's no way I could ever do the gluten challenge after being off gluten for even a month because my reactions got so dramatically worse.  Stress definately can trigger celiac- before I was diagnosed - it got the worst after surgery and after a stressful time planning my daughters wedding. 
    • Hi not diagnosed celiac, Welcome to the forum! Your doctor should be sent to remedial celiac disease training.  Since that probably won't happen, I suggest you find a new doctor.  He doesn't know what he's doing when it comes to diagnosing celiac disease. You should not have gone gluten-free before completing all celiac disease testing.  The testing for celiac disease depends on the immune reaction being active.  Removing gluten before testing removes the antigen that causes the immune system to react, and lowers the chances of getting a correct test result dramatically.  The University of Chicago celiac disease center recommends: ******************************************** http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ Prior to blood testing we recommend 12 weeks of eating gluten. Prior to an endoscopic biopsy we recommend 2 weeks of eating gluten. In the case of a severe reaction to gluten, a medical professional may opt to shorten the 12-week challenge and move immediately to an endoscopic biopsy. May, 2013 ******************************************** So you will need to go back to eating gluten before your endoscopy.  That may cause worse symptoms than before when you were eating gluten.  So it would have been better to do all testing before going gluten-free. Can you search for a celiac disease support group in your area?  They exist in many parts of the USA and world.  They can be a good place to get a knowledgeable doctor recommendation.  There is also a doctors subsection of this forum where you can search to see if any doctors in your area were recommended.
    • Hi All, I'm new to this and very confused! I have Lea & Perrins WC sauce, it lists it's first ingredient as Malt Vinegar.  I have the Coeliac Society of Ireland Food List 2015 here, and it says "All Vinegars are Gluten Free including Malt Vinegar." Doesn't that mean that L&P Worcestershire sauce is safe?   Their website states " Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire Sauce is cholesterol free, fat free, preservative free, gluten free and has 80% less sodium than soy sauce. " I'm cooking for my coeliac niece, can't afford to make a mistake!
    • I get these crazy cravings for some things I can not eat anymore. Not only am I diagnosed with celiac but I also have a allergy to corn, olives, sesame, peanuts, and intolerance to yeast, soy, dairy, and a very low tolerance for carbs/sugars, Top it off with I can not digest meats or egg yolks, they just give me the burps and come up later.
        To deal with these I find myself turning to Republic of Teas (They have a great desert tea line up all certified gluten-free) and sweetening them with monk fruit extract, or stevia. And I find myself making Puddings bases that I use for shakes, dips, and ice-cream for meals. The puddings are normally a blend of cashew, or almond milk with a thickening agent like agar agar, pectin, or knoxx gelatin, blended with a sweetener like xylitol, swerve, stevia, monk fruit or a combination. And flavored with Lor Ann Oils (all gluten-free certified and you can find the kosher ones listed as such) super strength flavors or fountain syrups to match something I can not eat normally a combination of two flavors (Strawberry Cheesecake, Banana and Carmel, Cookies & Cream, etc) Then I add a fat that matches best, like almond butter, cashew butter, hemp butter, ground flax seed, coconut flour, chocolate, Pumpkin seed butter or a combination) These bases are normally blended up and consumed with 1-2 scoops of protein powder and eaten with steamed vegges as a side dip or loaded into a ice cream maker for a desert after my meals.      Also found myself making desert soups....like a pumpkin soup that taste like pumpkin pie. I am sure we all have our little quirks but this is one of mine for getting that sweet craving taken care of. Most premade items are off my list due to the allergies and it seems most companies use the oils, starches I am allergic to as non stick or thickening agents, Even the semi safe ones tend to put way to much sugars in them and I find myself only being able to nibble . There is also my little binge issues with almonds, pumpkin seeds, and, cocoa but that was explained to me as normal And on my most craving for peanuts I have found sancha inchi powder to work great, The Powder itself taste like the girl scout peanut butter cookie sandwich from my childhood, And is great mixed with a bit of almond milk into a butter or used in baking and smoothies. Before this I have been making Artisan blends of almond butter for years and even made a market selling them to pay  for my own consumption. Baked goods wise I have a bunch of recipes I make for others and sell at markets and this allows me to nibble on a sample to check it, as most contain a bean or gluten-free Harvest Oats/Flour in them and the carbs from that and the coconut sugars bother me. Still helps with cravings there, I only have 2 recipes that sell good and are safe for me to eat full servings of but are so expensive as they use almond and coconut flours, low sugars/xylitol and are paleo that I only can afford to make them once a month. Posting to hear about some odd and out there ways others deal with substitutions and cravings. Please do not bash mine as odd as they might be as they keep me from going crazy. (Yes I know DROP THE OATS, fact is I only get them when tasting stuff and they are gluten-free Harvest, the only ones I have never gotten glutend with)
