Igg Positive For Gluten But Question

Recommended Posts

Guest keegans_mommy

I had an Elisa test done several months ago and the positives are represented by "class" numbers 1-4. There is a number before them: pg/ml where <1.00 is negative and the 4 is >30.00 Is anybody familiar with this Elisa test?

Ok, most of my positives are a 1 or 2. I have one 3 that is egg. I have a 1 for gluten so I am understaning that I have issues with gluten but they aren't terrible right?

I have searched the web looking for anybody else with this same test and I just can't find anybody who's had this same test! I have nobody to talk to about any of my results (non-doctor).

So, I went gluten free over 2 months ago and alot of my ailments have disappeared: chronic fatigue, anxiety/panic attacks, depression. I know when I have eaten gluten because I get panic attacks at night when I am sleeping but the problem I had last night was, I had panic attacks again until 2am. I was super careful yesterday. What gives???? I am so frustrated!

Hi and welcome. :)

Sorry, I can't help you with the test but I have seen it mentioned here and I am sure someone will be along who can help you.

I am glad to hear that so many issues are improving for you on a gluten free diet. :)

I don't know what could have caused your panic attack last night since you were being so careful. ;) Is there any chance there was cross contamination?

This is a great resource, feel free to ask anything.

December 2008, while seeing improvement on the gluten free diet, I did not recover and so in December of 2008 began the SCD and now have hope for recovery.

.

It's possible I suppose. I know I am rather naive with these questions as this is rather new to me but with such a low positive for gluten, would I get that much of a reaction? I didn't expect it, if I had accidentally eaten gluten.

Again, I'm not very helpful as I don't know what the numbers mean.

But I thought I would at least bump this thread up again. :)

Are you keeping a food journal? Many of us have found it very helpful in tracking our reactions.

Not right now but I have played with the idea but I am thinking that my memory isn't as good as I thought it would be.

All the more reason to. :)

I realized that for more information on the Elisa you could use the search function at the top of the page. Just type in Elisa and you'll see the check for this forum only, hit go and lots of responses come up. :)
