Sheesh!

Help Me Interpret My Enterolab Results?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I'm new here. My username is a result of having typed in 5-6 different names and having them all be taken. In frustration I said, Sheesh!

Here's my story, I'll try to keep it brief. Saturday I'll be 38. I have 3 children. The youngest is 8 months. His birth was long and complicated. I was hospitalized 5 days. While hopitalized I contracted an intestinal infection called C dif. It took 3 months of antibiotics to get rid of it. After that I could tell things still weren't right. A couple months of making excuses and then I eliminated gluten and all was well again. Challenged accidentally once, very ugly. I know I should be gluten free and that's not a problem for me. I'm also vegan for 9 years.

My breastfed 8 month old was having GI distress and when I went gluten free his symptoms cleared. I have occasionally suspected gluten intolerance in my other 2 children. The oldest had blood tests that came back normal, as did mine.

Here are my results. I'm DBQ1 and DQB3, right? I think I want to have the kids tested. Do you think I should? DH is saying he doesn't want to be tested because he doesn't want it to be true. ;p Oh, also, my mom has terrible symptoms and her sister just died of colon cancer at 62.

A) Gluten Sensitivity Stool and Gene Panel Complete *Best test/best value

Fecal Antigliadin IgA 14 (Normal Range <10 Units)

Fecal Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA 10 Units (Normal Range <10 Units)

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

Fecal anti-casein (cow

personally, i wouldn't assume anything based on those test scores. there is alot of controversy over enterolab-----and your test results are low compared to what most people seem to get from them. your Ttg levels, which would indicate celiac disease are normal and your antigliadin levels are only one point above normal----which could be caused by a number of different things. also, enterolab does not test total Iga serum levels.

& then again there are some doctors and a lot of people that use Enterolab & like them very much.

You have two gluten intolerant genes. Which means that it comes with all the celiac problems in addition to possible neurological problems and other food problems.

You are probably not going to be able to eat dairy - ever - is my experience with the gluten intolerant genes, whereas it seems the celiac gene people have a larger portion of people that can tolerate dairy.

If you have not other food problems - you are lucky & maybe because you already have healthy eating habits.

I would get the kids tested at enterolab. That is the only place that is going to pick up the gluten intolerance. If you are gluten intolerant you will suffer symptoms, & it can develope into full blown celiac with villi damage at some point, maybe when they are old, or it might never happen. Or they just might get cancer before the villi are gone, if they are still eating gluten. I am double DQ1 & my mother died of colon cancer...

It was my understanding that it doesn't matter how high or low the score is if it is in the 10+ range. It's like a pregnancy test - either you are or your aren't.

I've wondered if my levels were low because I only had symptoms for a couple of months before being tested and was gluten free for a month before testing. So maybe my body didn't build up really high levels yet.
