Good evening! I have been reading the board for several months and have learned a lot. We chose on our own to have our son tested with Enterolab. We received his results on Thursday.

Fecal Antigliadin IgA 17 (Normal Range <10)

Quantitative Microscopic Fecal Fat Score <300 (Normal Range <300 units)

Fecal Anticasein IgA antibody 14 units (Normal Range <10 units)

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0501

Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 1,2 (Subtype 2,5)

Fecal anti-ovalbumin (chicken egg) IgA antibody 16 units (Normal Range <10 units)

Fecal Anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae (dietary yeast) IgA 15 units (Normal Range <10 units)

Fecal Anti-Soy IgA 22 units (Normal Range <10 units)

So, we are removing gluten, casein, egg, soy, and yeast! I worked on cleaning out the freezer, pantry, and refrigerator today. We are going to focus on a pretty basic diet for a while---meats, fish, fruits, veggies, and rice.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Do I need to replace Tupperware type containers that have had gluten containing grains in them or will washing in the dishwasher take care of it? We will replace the toaster. What other kitchen utensils etc should we replace?

WElcome!!!!!!!

It's kind of daunting at first but it gets easier...especially as you start to feel better! I feel like a new person!

Tupperwear is kind of up in the air. Some get rid of it, some don't. I kept all mine that didn't have any scratches, stains ect and got rid of those that did. Some people chuck them all and start fresh. I haven't reacted to keeping mine. Same goes for pots and pans...any that have sratches...I chucked!

I would replace any wooden utensils if you use wood.They are too iffy!

I would replace your colander if you used plastic.

New baster brush.

New toaster.

Other than that I use the stuff I had pre diagnosis.

Be sure to check your toothpaste, lipstick and mouth wash.

Good luck and welcome to the board, it has been a HUGE help to me!!!

Books I recommend: "Living Gluten Free for Dummies" by Dana Korn and "Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic" by Dr.Peter Green!!! Both are very helpful and you can buy tehm together for around $30 on amazon .com

Hello and Welcome!

I was one of those that got rid of a lot of stuff. I kept my stainless steel pans, but got rid of my non-stick stuff. I got rid of my wooden spoon and things like that, because it just seems like I wouldn't be able to get them clean enough.

I bought new strainers, but this time got stainless steel instead of plastic.

I had just purchased a new toaster oven, so since I was able to remove most of the insides for cleaning, didn't worry too much about that.

Thanks! I will replace the colander, toaster, and make for sure the Tupperware does not have scratches. We don't use wooden utensils so that's not an issue.

I have Living Gluten Free for Dummies and have found it very helpful. I'll also be looking for cookbooks to help with the other sensitivities.

We told our son that we are going to focus on what the positive and what we can have as the whole family is doing this. I will involve him in helping make menus and finding recipes to try.

Once again thanks for the welcome and answering my questions.

Welcome,

And just wanted to add - we were told to get rid of our old cutting board (even though it wasn't wood).
