Gluten Sensitivity Stool Test

Fecal Antigliadin IgA 20 (Normal Range <10 Units)

Interpretation of Fecal Antigliadin IgA: Intestinal antigliadin IgA antibody was elevated, indicating that you have active dietary gluten sensitivity. For optimal health, resolution of symptoms (if you have them), and prevention of small intestinal damage and malnutrition, osteoporosis, and damage to other tissues (like nerves, brain, joints, muscles, thyroid, pancreas, other glands, skin, liver, spleen, among others), it is recommended that you follow a strict and permanent gluten free diet. As gluten sensitivity is a genetic syndrome, you may want to have your relatives screened as well.

I got the results back for DS (still waiting on results for DD). I told DH about it and I think the whole house should be gluten free. I don't think he is too happy about that (he is addicted to gluten....I want him to get tested also, but he refuses), but we have to do what is best for the kids. I told him that he could eat gluten non-stop away from the house, but we shouldn't have gluten in the house. He now wants to take the results to DS's doctor to "get her opinion". I asked him why he needs her opinion, but he didn't want to give me an answer. I don't really care what the doctor says because DS is going gluten-free.

I'm still kind of in shock. I thought DS was gluten intolerant, but it is still shocking because this will affect him for the rest of his life. Hopefully he will start gaining weight after going gluten free. He is only about 27 lbs right now (he is 3 y.o). I hope I get DD results back soon.

I was more upset about my daughter's tests coming back positive than my own. It's normal to be in shock, and even in denial about it. I hope your hubby understands if the doc doesn't accept Enterolab!


gluten-free 12/05

diagnosed with Lyme Disease 12/06

Yes, it is a shock. I was expecting it for 7 years with my daughter and it was still a shock.

My husband has a hard time with it also. He is finally coming around (after 5 months) but still isn't as convinced as me. I haven't told him he can't have gluten in the house but I don't make or serve gluten any more. If he wants it, he is on his own. So he has his bread and cereal and that is about it.
