Enterolab - Anybody Test Negativ?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm new here and found out in November that I have gluten and casein intolerance.

Testing was done by Enterolab.

A few weeks ago I thought that it might be a good idea to see how I'm doing with soy and ordered the Egg, Yeast and Soy Sensitivity test.

I just received the result and ALL THREE came back positive. Argh. :(

I'm having a hard enough time eliminating gluten and all dairy, not being able to eat soy, yeast and especially eggs is going to be daunting.

How accurate are Enterolab's results?

Do you think I can reintroduce eggs and yeast after a while?

Thank you for any information,

Minnie

Here are the results:

Gluten Sensitivity Stool Test

Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA 253 Units (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Cow's Milk Protein Sensitivity Stool Test

Fecal Anti-casein (cow

Your antigliadin tests were very high. I am not a medical professional but with your gluten tests at such a high level I think it is possible that after you have healed you may be able to reintroduce the egg and yeast but I of course can not be sure of that.

From my own personal experience I have been able to add back in casien and not react but not soy. Do be very strict with your gluten free diet and after you have healed then you could try adding back in the others one at a time to see if you can tolerate them.

A elevated antibody to a food is considered positive whether you have the blood tests or the more sensitive fecal tests. A negative test, (no elevated antibodies) does not rule out a food allergy. As the enterolab report said you need to avoid those foods from your diet for 12 months. Some foods you may be able to add back later, some foods you will always have to avoid. I have been cow milk free for about 5 years and still react even to a small amount. You probably be able to tolerate goat's milk, especially yogurt and kefir. I can tolerate small amounts of sheep's milk yogurt. I have found casein added to goats milk cheese so avoid it.

No laboratory is perfect but but Enterolab is as accurate as humanly possible. I trust their results. Most of us go thru a period where we are overwhelmed by the changes we have to make but then we feel so much better and healthier that we adjust .

Thank you both for your replies, I appreciate it.

I saw a new integrative Dr yesterday and she said she'd like me to avoid gluten, dairy, eggs, soy and yeast completely for 3 months. She suggested that, if I'm open to it, I get desensitized with acupuncture after 3 months and that hopefully I will be able to have egg, soy and yeast at least occasionally in limited amounts after that. Seeing that I have Hashimoto's, she says that gluten and possibly dairy are my main concerns.

I asked her about cosmetics and body care products and she says to avoid any with gluten.

Thank you again for your help. :)

My wife tested negative through Enterolab. Is your Dr. recommending desensitization for gluten?
