I finally got my food intolerance results. It's one thing to know that you feel sick after eating something but to have it in black and white through a blood test is something else.
It seems that my worst intolerance is to eggs...both the protein and the yolk. ............hhhhhmmmmmmmmmno. At least now I feel better knowing why I was so ill for days after having eggs. the next was milk, then wheat and gluten and a bunch of other things. Soy was listed as a low reaction but it really does a number on me and I have avoided having it. Some nuts but walnuts were ok. There was a lot of information there and I am going to try to the best of my ability to work out my diet. I am already feeling better and have not had diahrea just by avoiding gluten. I also put on 2 lbs! yeah....up to 94!
I went to the GI dr on Monday because of the IBS also acting up. He as pretty knowledgeable in gluten and wants to to a biopsy. At this point I don't want to have it done. He says that he needs it to make a real diagnosis especially since the trans glutaminase test was normal. the Gliadin AB IGg were high....but he said that's not enougn.
At this point I don't need the Celiac diagnosis.....feeling better without the gluten is good enough for me. I am not going to have the endoscopy. I may consider it when I move up North.... but then only at Columbia Presbyterian.
I am so happy I did this test. For me it was sooooooooooo worth the money. Although, I've been told not to rely on it 100%, I feel that it is helping me to get on the right track with my diet and therefore sooooooooo worth it.
Will keep you posted,

Hello! Glad to hear your feeling better. Could you please tell me about the york test? I have heard about them, but I went to an allergy doctor, who gave me the skin prick tests, and said if Im allergic, it will show on these tests. I asked him about blood tests, and he said they arent reliable, how do I know what to believe? Just wondering if someone can help me with advice... thanks..

Hi Dizzy. I was about to ask the exact same question.

Also, does anyone know if this test is available outside America? I'm in Australia. :huh:

Mel, If you are going to go glutenfree now, don't even consider the biopsy at a later date. You will start healing, and so the results might be negative. I am glad that you have answers, and that you now know what to do!
