York Food Intolerance Testing?

Recommended Posts

I know there is a lot of debate about food intolerance testing? Do you think it would be helpful to test my 19 month old? Our ped was going to run a food allergy panel (I am assuming the Elisa), but I have not heard too many good things about that test. My son is off of gluten and dairy, but he is still getting eczema flares. I think sometimes they are after eating peas, but I am not sure.

I don't know about york. My allergy/intolerant doctor uses US Biotek for the ELISA test.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
