Igg Testing

Recommended Posts

While I wait for my follow-up with gastro doc, I am wondering about the preliminary IgG results he sent me. I was reactive to wheat, oats, yeast and rice. Prior to testing I was consuming rice daily in some form or another, yeast a few days a week, gluten-free for 16 months, and off corn and dairy to the best of my ability for the previous 6 weeks. Corn and dairy (casein) were tested, but didn't register.

Does this follow the same logic as one must be consuming gluten for testing to be dependable? I know that I wasn't voluntarily consuming wheat and/or oats for 16 months prior to blood draw, though have certainly had the occasional (rare) glutening. Why would they show up if I am not consuming them?

Is IgG testing dependable and necessary?

My doctor told me that things can show up for years. It was recommended to cut everything out that showed any positive for at least 2 weeks and then reintroduce one at a time, about every 4 days. I'd suggest a month minimum and then reintroducing a new food every week or two.

IgG testing with my family was pretty much right on, as far as the higher positives, but it didn't come up with everything......unless the other things we tested positive for with the ASYRA test were new in the last year which is quite likely.

The following is a paper my doctor gave me.

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.
