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.

    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
