Please see the below results and any input in appreciated. It appears that he is reacting to EVERYTHING..we are definetly going to be cutting out gluten but how do we address the other issues? Is the fact that the gluten number a lot higher indicate that the gluten reaction is more severe? He has had a positive skin test to pork but it is showing as the least reactive? He also had a positive skin test to egg in the past but didnt at his last allergy appointment.

 

A + C) Comprehensive Gluten/Antigenic Food Sensitivity Stool Panel
(Combines Panels A and C at a discounted price)

Mean Value 11 Antigenic Foods      24 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA      149 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-casein (cow’s milk) IgA      53 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-ovalbumin (chicken egg) IgA      36 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

Fecal Anti-soy IgA      45 Units   (Normal Range is less than 10 Units)

 

While all of the foods tested can be immune-stimulating, the hierarchy of reactions detected were as follows:

Food toward which you displayed most immunologic reactivity: Oat, Rice, Cashew, Corn
Food toward which you displayed intermediate reactivity: Walnut, Beef, Almond, Tuna
Food toward which you displayed least immunologic reactivity: Chicken, White potato, Pork

Within each class of foods to which you displayed multiple reactions, the hierarchy of those reactions detected were as follows:

Grains:
Grain toward which you displayed the most immunologic reactivity: Oat
Grain toward which you displayed intermediate immunologic reactivity: Rice
Grain toward which you displayed the least immunologic reactivity: Corn

Meats:
Meat toward which you displayed the most immunologic reactivity: Beef
Meat toward which you were next most immunologically reactive: Tuna
Meat toward which you displayed intermediate immunologic reactivity: Chicken
Meat toward which you displayed the least immunologic reactivity: Pork

Nuts:
Nut toward which you displayed the most immunologic reactivity: Cashew
Nut toward which you displayed intermediate immunologic reactivity: Walnut
Nut toward which you displayed the least immunologic reactivity: Almond

Nightshades:
You displayed immunologic reactivity to white potato, the member of the nightshade family usually consumed most often and in greatest quantities. While this does not necessarily mean you would react to all other nightshade foods (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant), it is possible. In the realm of elimination diets for immunologic disorders, nightshades are usually eliminated as the entire food class (i.e., all four previously mentioned foods in this class). This is especially important to the clinical setting of arthritis.

 

Thanks again!

Just curious why you went for Enterolab over getting a doctor to order a Celiac blood panel?

We did take him to pediatric gi doc who ran blood tests and the results were negative. Doc said under 3 that blood results are not very accurate so we decided on enterolab. Gi doc did diganose with carbohydrate malapsorption issue.

Welcome to the board.

 

I've heard that enerolab tends to have a very high positive rate on its tests... many people take those rsults with a grain of salt since I don't think they are medically recognized as accurate. The only way you'll know for sure is if your try eliminating them I guess.

 

How many things did they test you against? I wonder because if it is not many then the wording is misleading. For instance, if they only only tested three nuts, then all they did was rank your reactivity. they did not say whether it was an abnormal reaction or whether it is all withing normal range. For example, if told to rank animal speed and you only tested a catepillar, a beetle and a mouse; the catepillar is slow, beetle is intermediate speed and the mouse is fastest.... It's not a good representaion of all animal speeds - what about cheetahs or slugs?  KWIM? The bottom tests don't look like very useful tests.... were they actually allergy tests or sensitivity tests?

 

Good luck with the gluten-free diet.

    • A ha ha ha ha This article is so flip floppin I can't even begin to comment  I.e. - you might be gluten intolerant but can eat some gluten !!!!????? may all potential people with real intolerances find their way here and not use this as their primary source of info on celiac, gluten intolerance, and wheat IgE allergy   yikes
    • Yes the crumpets are excellent. I have them quite often in the winter. Look and taste is excellent. They're probably not as chewy as the gluten ones but that's not really an issue as they are chewy in comparison to what I eat now. 
    • Wow! Didn't realise that was a possibilty! I've had the little biscuits they make, they're really nice and the only danger is finishing the entire bag at a sitting! The weird thing is that I wasn't that fussed about panettones until I couldn't have them any more, now I really want one  The BeFree wraps are the best for burritos and the Newburn ones are good for sandwiches and even mini pizzas. They're each expensive but very good as a treat or if travelling. 
    • If you are still worried you can also ask that the dry ingredients be mixed/poured outside (eg. on a deck, balcony etc.) and only be brought inside once combined with the wet ingredients. I believe someone else on the board once posted this as a suggestion, and I took it up to avoid roommate mutiny. Before I insisted on this, I would always get sick when roommates baked, even if I wasn't there at the time or hid in my room during. It might be however, that your current method is fine for you though - not a lot of studies in this area to prove anything either way.
    • I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc....now that has me stressed. Like I have a limited budget but if I get them on these sales I save money for the next few months buying in bulk on sale......but then the stress of borrowing money and doing so....which purchases to make, what saves me the most in the long run, will it last me til the next sale...balancing all this out with a limited budget when your bad with numbers is scary/frustrating. Damnest thing is I do not care for the specials on technology. vanity items, etc. I am just focusing on essentials and stuff I use or would use daily to improve my life and make savings in the long run. I think the only actual 2 items I am looking at is a charm for my mother for Christmas and a water filtration system for my kitchen. Other then that it is all food, supplements, spices, and medications lol.

      OH another funny thought due to lack of orders, I am opting to go help cook a community dinner at a church for over 450 people. I already brought/opted in to bring my own spices, starches, etc for the areas to keep it safe for my stations and will be helping with the turkeys and serving up a bunch of gluten free/corn free desserts so I will be in a safe element for my health risk. Got 16 turkeys, 1 food service pan of gluten free pear cobbler, 1 pan of pumpkin chocolate brownies gluten free, pumpkin pies to pull out and do starting in the morning.
