Enterolab Results - Help Me Understand Gene Results

4 posts in this topic

I'm a little confused by my results. Are they indicative of Celiac or gluten sensitivity? My symptoms have gone away since I have gone gluten free, so I will continue that path. Since I have genes from both parents, should I have my children tested? They have been gluten free for a couple months, but I'm wondering if I should have them do the gluten challenge and do a blood test for them. They (triplets) are almost two, but I only saw symptoms in one of my daughters. Not sure where to go with my kids, as I'm seeing improvements with their gluten free diet, but it would be helpful to get an official diagnosis.

Any insight or advice is appreciated. Thank you!!

These are my results:

Date: 11/2/2012

B) Gluten/Antigenic Food Sensitivity Stool/Gene Panel

Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA 8 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-casein (cow

I'm pretty new to this, I just got my enterolab results yesterday but have been researching a lot of what they meant. Maybe someone else has better answers but it doesn't really look to me like you are showing gluten sensitivity since your test was less than 10. Also the genes you have are not indicitive of celiacs, so you could be gluten sensitive but probably not celiacs. Your daughters would have at least one gluten senisitive gene from you. I don't know about doing a gluten challenge I don't think a gluten sensitivity would show up on a blood test but maybe someone else could chime in better on that.

Maybe you could contact the lab and get your results interpreted in English. I tested with another lab and was wholly impressed., I got a full explanation of the genetic results and also they could tell me about my parents and children's genes since mine were 4/4. I had 2 genes alleles for celiac and two for gluten intolerance. These are listed by my profile. I know there is some mistrust of these tests, but my chiro and MD backed them. The MD called them the new gold standard. There is a difference of opionion and each should decide carefully for themself.

My reactions when I went gluten free definatly backed my test results. I am optismistic that others who have undergone this testing also may chime in.

    • I think GFinDC has some good suggestions for you & I know you don't want to hear this but I will ditto what he said about the Fasano diet. I think you need to be on it longer than 3 months. After all, in the trials he was part of, the diet was to be adhered to for 3 to 6 months. I think the majority stayed on it for around 4.5 months. Really, I think you should go back to it & do a minimum of 6 months but more likely 9 mos. to a year. I know it sucks. I know it's going to be a royal pita. But being sick is a royal pita that sucks big time. One thing you can do is to make home made bone broth. Ultra nutritious & helps heal the gut. Google how to make it. Roast the bones first though even if the recipe doesn't mention that. It will taste far better and be better.  Do you have a shared kitchen? Do you EVER eat out? Do you eat ANY gluten-free processed foods? Check your meds. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
    • As for eating out, I have found anywhere in the UK that in even semi-decent restaurants I can tell them exactly what I want. Look through their menu and pick things you like and tell them what you want and how to cook it. Most decent chefs will like a change and a challenge and I have been pleasantly surprised with the help that they have given. After a while you will have list of decent restaurants that you can trust. Usually I ask for a rare staeck cooked in Corn oil or olive oil with boiled potatoes and non-buttered veg. If you starts thre the chef usually gives other suggestions but make sure he/she is well aware of basic coeliac gluten cross contamination in kitchen, esp deep fat fryers.
    • Hi plumbago, No, D is not a symptoms only associated with severe celiac disease damage, if that's what you are thinking.  Every time we ingest gluten the immune reaction is kicked off again, and the damage starts all over.  If we ingest gluten daily, the immune reaction never stops, and we end up  with significant damage.  If we stop eating gluten, the immune reaction will decrease over time, and the damage will decrease also.  Healing will also happen as well. The moral of the story is Stop Eating Gluten!
    • Hi Ken. I know how you feel. I am Coeliac (UK!) with multiple intolerances and it has taken me meny years to isolate exactly what the problem foods are. I cannot really advise you what to eat or to avoid as everyone is different but I can suggest you "go back to basics" - in other words absolutely no processed foods even those that are heavily advertised as Gluten Free etc etc - just have a good look at what is in them. Basic food, cooked from scratch is healthier and much easier to isolate foods that you may be intolerentto. I cannot eat: Gluten, including Oats, all dairy, eggs (whites are worse than yolks), soya (a real b---h), preservatives (phosphates, sulphates, sulphites -which rules out 99.9% of wines and most bottled drinks) and various veg/fruits including butternut squash, cashews, grapes, pears, leeks, Celery (sulphites) and artificially "smoked" meats and stock cubes (I keep all bones and make my own stock, free!). I now cure my own bacon (simple - belly pork with dry cure of rock salt and molasses/demarara sugar for 5 days in fridge) but stay away from all pre-packed sliced meats which are full of preservatives) and the only bread I can eat is Seattle Brown Loaves. Keep well away from "E" numbers and any foods that require processing in their production and beware of "Vegetable" oil which is usually soya. Use Corn oil, Ghee (salted butter melted in a pan, remove the scum which is the protein and you are left with a golden liquid) or walnut/coconut oils. Also beware of Crisps/Chips (USA term). Most are sprayed with some liquid prior to cooking and only one type does not affect me - Kettle Crisps/Chips, low salted only NEVER take artifical flavourings in any foods - hidden in E numbers. If I do eat any of the above the symptoms are basically the same, headaches, wind, tiredness, migraines and a feeling of "low" almost depression but not quite as bad. Can last for up to 5 days but usually 1/2. It is really the caveman diet - absolutely no fast foods. I can make myself a meal in a few minutes with anything I have in the house. I eat any meats, most veg (onions, carrots, garlic, peppers, potatoes, of course, green veg etc). A wok is good to have as is a pressure cooker for making stock out of bones. Menus: Breakfast, bacon, fried potatoes, onions peppers. Tea with Honey and Coconut cream (coconut a gem!) and Seattle bread toasted (best that way with "Pure" Sunflower spread) . Lunch: soup, toasts and meat of some kind. Apples, oranges etc Dinners: staples of potatoes, pastas (Gluten free of course), rice, meats, veg, fish. Never concern yourself with what you cant eat, concentrate on what you can and I enjoy cooking my own food and I can also prepare a dinner party and nobody knows it is designed for me! Best of luck, it is a change of lifestyle for the good. Excuse ramblings at times as I keep remembering things as I write.
