Allergy Panel Results In

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Well, we had pretty much decided DS had celiac after blood results showed his antibodies elevated. We didn't want to do the biopsy, so we just started the diet. It has been working really well!

Today, our full allergy panel came back and DS tested positive for a wheat and egg allergy. Now, I know a wheat allergy is a bit different from celiac, but do all celiacs test positive for it because of the gluten? Is it possible it is just a wheat allergy and not celiac? I'm confused!

I shouldn't get too overwhelmed considering how many allergies some of your kiddos have. I mean, we have it pretty good and shouldn't take things for granted, but it just seems like he can't eat anything now! We finally found some gluten-free crackers that he loves and there are eggs in it. :(

Can't help ya with regard to the Celiacs testing positive for a wheat allergy, because I do have both, with different response.

But as far as the egg allergy goes, you need to actually test your son's response to eggs to find out if this is a true allergy, or a false positive. You may find that he has no response at all to eggs, or that egg whites, or egg yolks are okay, or that he can eat a little bit of egg cooked into something, but not eggs by themselves.

Use the test as a starting point, not a definitive answer.
