Test Results In

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am fairly new to this board and have recently received my Enterolab results back. Can anyone help me interpret these?

Fecal Antifliadin IgA 64 (normal range <10 units)

Fecal Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA 33 units (normal range <10 units)

Quantitative Microscopic Fecal Fat Score <300 units (normal range <300 units)

It says I hav an active dietary gluten sensitivity. I feel relieved that I finally found out what is wrong.

Is there any such thing as a FALSE positive on these tests?

Please help.

Denise

Your results mean you are producing antibodies to gluten and you are having an autoimmune reaction to gluten. Your fat absorbtion is in the normal range so your intestine doesn't appear to be damaged.

If you don't mind me asking how long did it take for the results to come back in? Everyone tells me a week but yesterday went one week so I called and they said it can take up to another week. The waiting is frustrating.

Hello,

Thank you so much for your responses. I sent my sample in on 11/22 which was right before Thanksgiving, so not counting that Thurs, Friday and weekend, it took 8 days. I know its very hard waiting. I must have checked the web site for results a hundred times. hang in there. I never thought I would be so happy to find out that I am sick. But at least now I know what I am dealing with.
