While using my limited Google-Fu skills to find a way of deciphering the results of my Enterolab stool testing, I saw several results pointing me to this forum. While I consider myself a reasonable intelligent person, this seems sort of Greek to me so, I thought I'd try to ask someone who might be more of a 'subject matter expert'. If I'm reading this correctly, I do not really have Celiac disease but, I do have sensitivity to both gluten and eggs (the later completely threw me for a loop!) - am I correct in my understanding?
I also don't know if I really understand the genetic results but, again, sounds like I do not have the genes for Celiac but, do have two genes which indicate a predisposition to gluten sensitivity, does that sound right? Any input or guidance would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to be able to explain this to my other half who's pretty much said he won't be changing the way he cooks, with regard to the elimination of gluten, until I can show him there's a legitimate reason why he should (e.g., results showing that I have a sensitivity to wheat products).
Thanks in advance for your time and information!
Edit - Realized I never included the actual results....
Gluten/Antigenic Food Sensitivity Stool/Gene Panel
Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA 13 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)
Fecal Anti-casein (cow’s milk) IgA 7 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)
Fecal Anti-ovalbumin (chicken egg) IgA 13 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)
Fecal Anti-soy IgA 4 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)
HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0301
HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0609
Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 3,1 (Subtype 7,6)
I wasn't sure if the narrative bits were also important to include but if so, please let me know and I'll happily update the information.
