Enterolab Results Are In, Gene Testing? Candida, Chest, Throat Pain Many Other Issues.
0

2 posts in this topic

Well after several months of major sickness, I received my Enterolab results today, stating I am Gluten intolerant. I have been MAJOR sick, please see below. I am wondering if I should do the DNA testing now, especially worried about possiblity for my 3 year old.

Gluten Sensitivity Stool Test

Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA 53 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units) Talking with Enterolab they felt this could even potentially be higher for me but since I am having so many immune type problems they said the immune stops with the IGA, or they feel someone with all of my symptoms could be up in the 200+ range.

I have had a 25 lb weight loss in the past 2 months

Endoscopy showed inflammation of stomach and erosive gastritis

I had my Gallbladder removed 2.5 weeks ago, it wasn't functioning, upon removal they found it had been chronically inflammed

I have had a constant feeling something is stuck in my throat (they don't have a clue what's causing this) Along with this comes major chest pain in the middle of my chest (again no clue why)

Continunous high white blood count for the past 2+ years, (they don't know why)

My C-Reactive Protein was 3x higher than it should be on my last test

My fecal lactoferrin showed positive for inflammation

I keep getting tonsil stones in my throat and have bad breath

They just found a Yeast/Fungal overgrowth in my intestine for the second time and have me on a 2 week does of antifungals

Dizziness/Passing Out/Vertigo/Ear Ringing

TMJ

Anxiety/Depression

Nausea/Vomiting

Diaherra/Constipation

Bloating

Vitamin D Deficient

Major back pain - feeling like my spine is starting to curve. I am only 34!

Migraine history

Positive IGE Skin Prick testing to Soy, Corn, Chicken

I have been on PPI's for stomach acid

I have also been exposed to Toxic Mold in my house, which I believe is now all remidiatied....however I am wondering if this brought all of these symptoms out.

Are you still eating gluten? I know you stopped at one point prior to a blood testing for a couple of weeks but was that your only gluten free trial?

About all I can suggest at this point is to do the diet, if you are not doing it already. Your list of symptoms sounds like a celiac/gluten intolerant shopping list for sure. My personal feeling is it's time to stop shopping around for a diagnosis and see if gluten free works. And a good diet trial is 3-6 months.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
