Looking For A Little Input On Test Results...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am new to all of this and trying to work out all the info... I had saliva testing done as well, I have low cortisol, low progesterone, low estrogen (but estrogen is higher than progesterone), and really high testosterone. (I'm a 40 year old female by the way...) I was dx with Hashimoto's about 10 years ago. Here are my Enterolab results:


A-2) Gluten/Antigenic Food Sensitivity Stool/Gene Panel

Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA 81 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-casein (cow’s milk) IgA 80 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-ovalbumin (chicken egg) IgA 32 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-soy IgA 57 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)

Fat Malabsorption Stool Test (Fecal Fat)
Quantitative Microscopic Fecal Fat Score 1347 Units (Normal Range is less than 300 Units)


I'm particularly curious about people's thoughts on the fat malabsorption test and what that means. I am on a gluten free diet (since beg of Nov 2013). I try to limit soy, but should I be completely gluten, dairy, soy, AND egg free? (Yikes.)


Thanks for any thoughts and advice...

I can't really offer you any input or conclude anything because (and I do not like to tell this to people)the truth is, Kenneth Fine's testing methods have not been validated or peer-reviewed.

He has yet to publish the results of his research in a mainstream medical journal, so most doctors discount EnteroLab stool testing as a way to diagnose any food intolerances.

In fact, there are no valid tests to diagnose non- celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) or any food intolerances as yet.

But he keeps selling the test kits to people. 

Sorry.  :(

Why not go to a doctor and get a celiac blood test? Start from there?

Sorry. Missed the part that you have been gluten-free for a few months. Can't get a reliable celiac test without eating gluten for a few months. I know they are trialling some test that can detect celiac after a few days eating it but it's not out yet.

You don't say why you think eggs, etc bother you. Maybe just eliminate one item for a few weeks and see if it helps?
