just had my allergy appoitment, she tested a multiple of foods and the results shocked me. the prob is do i really take noye in what she said or is it just a quack :angry: she yested me with a sort of shoch to the thumb while holding an iron like barrel shape thing. anyway by her testing she said i had a major prob with all wheat, all cheese and milk,all green veg ie sprouts and brocoli,tomatoe, potoes starch, cod liver oil, all poultry, femeldehide and soya. there were little ones that she advise me reduce my intake of. curiously she didnt pick up on gluten and had advised me to eat it ( scary) , altho the test picked up malt and cider viniger, bakeing powder and yesat. dont know what to make of it, not happy with reintergrateing gluten :angry: also she said i had a big, huge reaction with white wne :blink::angry::(:o:unsure: ( ok i know the test is a fake now) anyone had testing like this before? cheers for any advice on this.

I've never heard of this type of testing. It sounds pretty fishy to me. I've had both RAST (where they test the blood) testing and Skin Prick Testing, where they put the allergen on your skin, then a slight scratch to introduce the allergen into your system... and wait. And, also intradermal testing, where they inject a tiny bit of the allergen into your skin. But, never a shock with an iron rod... LOL!

Was this a reputable allergist??? Is it some new sort of testing that isn't widely used yet????

I've never heard of an trained Allergist testing that way, and would be suspicious of those results. Plus, is she saying you are allergic or intolerant? It's an important disctinction, since they involve different immune responses. Traditional allergy tests do not show intolerances, just allergies. Also, if I recall correctly, testing for formaldehyde sensitivity/allergy isn't part of traditional allergy tests...you would need to do a 48 hour patch test for that.

In terms of traditional allergy testing, I've never had blood tests done, just the skin prick tests. My son had the injection test in addition to skin prick test to confirm how sensitive he is to penicillin...the results showed that he needed to carry an epipen.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
