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.
