6 Yr Old Son's Enterolab Results

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

These are my son's results from Enterolab. Can someone please explain them to me? I understand he has antibodies to gluten, soy, egg, and milk. But is it unusual for his gluten #s to be so high? I understand that he has two genes for gluten sensitivity. I find it hard to understand the genetic part. Can someone who is knowledgable explain? Thanks!

Well, according to the Elab results, your son is producing antibodies to several foods. Is there a reason you chose Enterolab? Have you tried the standard MD approach?

My son started rectal prolapsing in November, and we went to a pediatric specialist who did an exam and said he was probably just constipated (which he wasnt) and the doctor was not worried at all, just said to up his fiber. I started researching rectal prolapse and found out that celiac could be a cause of it, there were other symptoms he has that I figured were at least gluten sensitivity related. I found out about enterolab and gave it a try, because it is less invasive.

We are definitely going gluten free for my son. They recommend eliminating soy, egg, and milk too. Are his scores high for those three?

Well, they all read as high. It's my opinion that when it comes to food causing you problems, the very best diagnostic is how you feel. You might want to remove all of those foods for a few weeks and see if he feels better, and then test them one at a time to see if any of them are associated with any symptoms.

oooh, now that's a tough one. You might need to try something entirely different. Check out the What's for breakfast thread and see if there's something in there that might work for you.
