Entero Lab Question

Recommended Posts

I've often wondered if any of Enterolab's gluten intolerance stool test customers ever received results from them that determined they were NOT gluten intolerant? If they have, I wonder what the percentage is. B)

I personally know (in RL) a couple people who have had tests come back negative. One had everything normal, and their Dr. did a total serum IgA and they were not IgA deficient. Another had gluten, casein normal, but showed high soy. So I know that at least some Enterolab results are negative. A relatively low percentage I'd guess, probably due to the self-selecting test population.


Undiagnosed for 20 years since first symptoms.
