Hi Sandi,

Your gluten antibody is slightly elevated according to Dr. Fine's reference range. So you are having an immune reaction to gluten.

Your anti-tissue transglutaminase antibody is normal, so that's good. This tests for an autoimmune reaction.

Your tests for casein and egg were also negative, so that's also good!

Your fecal fat score is really high. It could be the gluten, or it could be something else.

You have gluten sensitive genes but not celiac genes. This distinction doesn't mean much; the diet is the same.

Hope this helps!!


gluten-free May 17, 2007; casein-light since June 2007

Dx'ed gluten/casein intolerant by Enterolab. Family doc dx'ed "gluten sensitive" after dietary response. DQ 6 & DQ 7

8 year old daughter dx'ed gluten/casein intolerant & malabsorption by Enterolab and has been GFCL since June 12, 2007. Excellent response to diet, including growth! Tummyaches & irritability are gone! DQ 5 & DQ 6

Husband has DQ 5 (elementary, my dear Watson!). Self-diagnosed gluten-intolerant by diet response and challenge.

ok I am just trying to understand

but arnt the both condricting each other?

I am not sure what they were looking for for the anti-tissue transglutaminase antibody one?

If it was Positive - what would that have meant?

<<<"Your fecal fat score is really high. It could be the gluten, or it could be something else.">>>

Yes i was really sick then, with a accidental gluten

<<<"You have gluten sensitive genes but not celiac genes. This distinction doesn't mean much; the diet is the same.">>>

I didnt think the test Dx celiac?

Just that you are gluten sensitive?

Could it turn in to celiac?

thank you for responding

I just want to understand

there really doesn't appear to be anything in those test results that indicates a gluten problem. the antigliadin antibody was 1 point above normal. antigliadin antibodies can be slightly elevated by a number of things---even constipation can raise them. your fat score was incredibly high. there are a number of different things that can cause malapsorption and it is important to know exactly what is causing it because different causes are treated differently. i'd suggest you continue to investigate things.

I get so sick when I eat gluten, and now I am getting rashes from it.

what else could it be? if not gluten

That high score I think was from a week long cheat and I was having the runs and stuff

thats why I think happen there

Sandi,

Your score for reacting to gluten is at the bottom of the reference range but from what you've said you definately need to go gluten free.

I think ttg has to do with autoimmune reactions so the fact that you are below the reference for that is good.

Your fecal fat is alarmingly high and I highly suggest further testing. Your best bet would be with a naturopath/holistic doctor or even a LLMD (lyme literate medical doctor) as they test for everything under the sun, not just lyme.

With you malabsorption being that high it is possible to become sensitized to other foods. Make sure you rotate what you eat as best you can......every 4 days rotation of foods.

You're not intolerant to dairy but I would suggest avoiding cheese if you can, or make consumption limited. It's super sticky and doesn't help things in the intestines.

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.

Could that high of malabsorption be something like crohns?

If you feel better off gluten then i would stay off of it for life, or maybe challenge it in 6 months or an yr and see how you feel.

I wish i could be of some help, but im really stumped by that high of an malabsorption score. I agree with others tho and try more testing and see what they can come up with.
