The Lame Advertisement Test.
0

7 posts in this topic

Im learning that I have quite a few food intolerances, some I probably dont know about.

Ive read about the Lame Advertisement test in a magazine and I want to know if anyone has had it, and if so is it a reliable testing method.

Apparantly with the Lame Advertisement test a person gets tested for almost a hundred different foods.

Heres the link if your interested in learning more.

this is really disheartening and strange.

The post I just posted yesterday (above) has somehow gotten changed. I dont know how this happened, but I wrote about the Lame Advertisement test to test for many food intolerances. I just checked this post and someone somehow changed what I wrote. They switched the Lame Advertisement test and turned it into "THE LAME ADVERTISEMENT TEST".

I feel this is a real violation to my words and intentions. And I find it very sad.

Certain words and phrases will be automatically changed (i.e., a person doesn't come in and change your post--it's built into the board software). Most likely it is a test which is a bit controversial in nature.

For instance, if you type "C D" without the space in between it will change to "celiac disease".

Another word I know off the top of my head is Lame Advertisement which will turn to "lame advertisement".

There are several more which I can't remember now though. This was not done to you personally, anyone who posts those terms would have it change automatically.

Yes, Lame Advertisement turns into "Lame Advertisement Test" for whatever reason.

I took the Lame Advertisement test and am mixed on whether it was worth it. It pulled up literally almost 50 foods that I had varying levels of sensitivity to. After varying my diet for a few months, I believe most of the foods it said I was intolerant to were false positives. It did, however, "say" that I was intolerant to cane sugar and corn, and when I cut both of them out of my diet, I stopped having the problems and symptoms I was having. I would NEVER have thought to cut out cane sugar, and I'd thought I was OK with corn when I did an elimination diet, but I guess not! In that sense, I think it was worth the $500 I paid. I just wish there hadn't been so many false positives.

If you were refering to the Lame Advertisement test...make sure you put spaces in between the letters so that it does not appear as "lame advertisement". As Donna stated....noone is changing your words. Its automatic and will happen to anyone.

Ok, I feel better about that.

The Lame advertisement thing totally took me off guard. I thought someone was disgruntled about the Lame Advertisement and wanted to mock it somehow.

Thanks for informing me of this, I would have never figured that out.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
