It starts skeptically but does balance it out later.

I did a 100something test years ago & while acknowledging that the results might be a little fuzzy, I thought it was worth it. Brought yeast to my attn for the first time.

EE is not something allergy testing would find. So your daughter is reacting and you can't see it because EE isn't IgE mediated so that makes totally sense.

Also, most Dr. want to scope often for EE to see if there are sections going on. That is common practice and real they only reliable way (as of now) that EE can be looked at. I know many Mom's of EE kids and they are always getting scoped. I understand each parent makes those decisions.

But the doctor told me if it is negative, then it is usually negative. So you can rule out some things.


Sooooooooooooo not true. My prick test showed everything negative. I have severe IgE reactions to both shellfish and milk.

A reaction always trumps test results but a positive SPT or RAST test is about 50% accurate and a negative is 90+% accurate. So negatives are usually pretty reliable except in that 5-8%.

Sorry this turned into an EE thing and not celiac!

Celiac and EE do have connections. We are starting to get statistics of patients with both Celiac and EE. Some EE patients may need to be gluten free.

I am going to dare to say we might have at least 10% EE peeps here. :ph34r: (Let's just say I found quicker answers herefrom our EE folks than searching out EE sites.) :D ;)

Ok I got my results in. It was higGh on all dairy-casein, whey, everything. Also on goats milk. Slightly high on a couple fruits but I'm allergic to fruit so avoid them anyway. I will try avoiding all dairy ( including products with "may contain traces of milk " statements"). My blood tests showed I'm anemic and low in B12, and VERY low in vitamin D. Will be taking supplements. Also may start eating organic.
