Lymphoblastic Stimulation Test with Food Proteins in Digestive Intolerance to Cow's Milk and in Infant Diarrheas

AB- The lymphoblastic stimulation test (LST) with cows milk proteins was performed in 114 infants. In 42 infants, digestive intolerance to cows milk proteins (CMI) was suspected; withdrawal/re-challenge test confirmed intolerance in 34, and disproved it in the other eight patients. Of the other patients, 17 had acute gastroenteritis, 11 had postgastroenteritis sub-acute diarrhea, 12 had gluten intolerance, 14 had intractable diarrhea, and 18 had no digestive disorders. Of the 34 infants with CMI, 27 (79%) had a positive LST to one or more cows milk proteins.

Of the 34 positive LST patients, 12 also had Soya intolerance; nine of these 12 infants (75%) had positive LST to Soya. Of the eight infants who had a negative cows milk re-challenge test, five (62%) had a positive LST. In the other groups, results were also positive in 12-27% of those having diarrhea of infectious origin or gluten intolerance, and in none of the infants without digestive disorders. Of the 14 cases of severe intractable diarrhea, 12 (86%) were also LST-positive, but CMI could not be excluded. LST was positive, particularly in diarrhea of neonatal origin. Lymphoblastic stimulation was induced more frequently by casein than by beta lactoglobulin, and least frequently by alpha lactalbumin. In conclusion, LST is frequently positive in CMI, but is not sufficiently specific to be a reliable diagnostic examination.

Vitamin deficiencies of vitamins D, C, and B12 and Calcium deficiency can all cause night sweats. (Perhaps the methyl form of B12 is needed for those with that MthFr gene.) Also, consistently high blood sugar levels can cause night sweats. As a type two diabetic, I find if my blood sugar...

It's unfair to make such a general statement about ER's and hospitals. Unfortunately, I've been to the ER several times and hospitalized three times in the past few years. The staff took me seriously when I told them I had celiac. Popsicles and drinks were checked for gluten, and a good laugh ...

Hello, I have been dealing with a mysterious rash for the past ten years that I am slowly beginning to think is DH. It comes and goes, is itchy as all get out and shows up in all the areas that DH appears (elbows, back, torso, knees and base of neck). It comes and goes over the years which...

I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I can relate in some ways. I've took generic Zoloft for about 10 years. When I was diagnosed celiac I worried about and researched my medications and am confident that they are safe for me. I have spent many years fighting depression and anxiety and ...
