Allergy Test For Gluten, Wheat, Milk

Recommended Posts

Guest maybe I have celiac

I just had my RAST blood test results and the doctor indicated that they are normal, i.e. not allergy.

I sitll think I have gluten and casein problems. Is there a reliable test, blood test, for celiac, gluten intolerance and casein intolerance to confirm my suspicions?

I don't want the biopsy

There is a celiac blood panel that can be run to check for Celiac Disease, and there is a lab called Enterolab that can check for gluten/casein intolerance via a stool test. I don't know of a blood test that will check for casein intolerance though.

I had IgG (delayed reaction) blood testing for many foods and came back positive for casein - the protein in milk, wheat, oats and rice. There is a Celiac panel but you must make sure the doctor orders the complete panel. You can find that info many places - I don't have it handy right now. Enterolab (stool testing) is also available as per previous post.

The endoscopy is not too bad an experience and can give you answers if you have the right doctor perform the procedure and take many, many samples so as not to miss any patchy damage.

Do not stop eating gluten if you plan on pursuing testing. You may skew your results if you stop before testing.

That type of testing will not pick up gluten or casein problems as they are intolerances rather than allergies.

You could go with enterolab, ask your doctor for a full celiac panel (knowing that these are not always correct either) or eliminate gluten and casein from your diet and see what happens.
