    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Igg Elisa Test Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I had blood work (Immuno labs) done back in 06 for food allergies and I was told that I was allergic to wheat, eggs, bakers yeast and brewers yeast with wheat being the least allergic. I had terrible trapped gas, foul smelling stool, constipation, foggy headed and felt like I always had the flu.

I am doing my best not to eat these things at all but I still feel feverish with a sore throat most days and foggy headed all day. So now I am questioning the results.

My question is this: On this blood work it indicates that I am allergic to eggs the most, then yeast and wheat being the least, a +1 on a scale of 1 to 4. But when I eat bread, pizza and such is when I feel the worst. But if I eat eggs it doesnt seem to bother me and I am more allergic to eggs than wheat.

I also had the IgG Elisa Test done and it was 15 (negative) and the IgA Elisa and it was 21 ( weak positive).

Doesnt this mean I do not have celiac disease?

Also on this bloodwork they did a tTG tet which is also negative. I am not sure what this is for.

Also, I have a dog that was paralyzed from the waist down and has to be given enemas weekly, he also doesnt have alot of control with his bowels and has accidents, every time he does have an accident I can feel my head and ears feeling up with mucus immediately and feel flu ish. I looked at the ingredients of his dog food and it has wheat gluten in it, could this possibily be connected?

I am just so sick of feeling like do do everyday and I can not seem to pin point exactly what is causing it.

Thanks for listening!

First are you avoiding all gluten, wheat, rye, barley and oats? Celiac is more than a wheat allergy, in fact it is a different horse althougher. Celiac is an autoimmune respone not an allergy response. It often does not show up at all on allergy testing.

Have you had a celiac panel? This test looks for the antibody response in the blood. This however is not the greatest test for accuracy. Many of us, myself included will show up negative on testing even in the end stage. If I remember correctly the number is about 30% who show up negative no matter how sick they are.

I would try diligently eliminating ALL gluten sources incuding your dogs food. There are some good gluten-free dogs foods out there, I use the Innova Evo line but there are others. And yes cleaning up after a dog who is on a full gluten diet can make you sick, as can his licking you or licking himself and then you pet him. You also may want to switch him for his healths sake. I was surprised how much better some of my older animals have done since I switched them. One kitty who was over 26 lbs and ate until he threw up at least 5 times a day on gluten food and had lots of missing hair is now just as fat but he plays with the other animals now, his fur has grown back, and he no longer vomits multiple times a day. Not having to clean up projectile vomit daily is a big relief to me.

Read as much as you can here, ask any questions you need to, no matter how silly or gross. Take Care and welcome.
