Gi Stool Panel Text Questions

1 post in this topic

I have recently went to a functional medicine Dr. who is also a certified clinical nutritionist, due to having several health issues. I have had chronic female issues, PH Levels off, Bacterial Vaginosis, Yeast, Years of Constipation, Little cysts popping up here and there, sinus infections, anxiety, depression, fatigue, irritability, bloating, bladder pain (thinking about texting me for IC). Anyway after jumping from quack quack Dr. to quack quack Dr. and not giving up...I found an article that pointed me to a site for a Dr. in CA. This Dr. co-wrote the book "The Gluten Effect", I called this Dr. I live in WI. She said she felt she could help me but I need to come to CA, which I couldn't do. So, I found a Dr. like herself in my area. My first appt. was at the beginning of Aug. they decided to run a complete GI stool sample profile on me (sent to a lab, metametrix) that goes right down to the DNA. I got my results back this past Friday. It showed a substantial fungal overgrowth, a low level of PH (meaning to much acid in my system) I am not breaking down fats. On this GI panel is a text for your reaction to fecal sIgA and Anti-gliadin sIgA which I came back in the 65-70% positive range for. Has anyone used this type of test to determine gluten intolerance? I meet with the Dr. to discuss results this Wed. I know they will pull me off of gluten, among several other things for at least 6 weeks. My question I am wondering is am I intolerant and will I be most likely pulled off forever, or just while I heal? It's been a while since I read the "gluten effect" book but if I recalled from that book, I would be considered intolerant forever?!?
