As far as I understand, intolerances are for life. The antibodies should go down if you are not consuming the food in question and not getting trace amounts from cc or other such thing.

I just got tested a few months back so I haven't been retested.

Matilda....I tested neg. for everything but gluten so I cant really answer your question. I was always confused about Enterolab saying all these IgA antibodies are "for life". I havent seen evidence of this anywhere. As far as I know...once a person heals and if there arent other issues to deal with like leaky gut, candida, etc...other food intolerances should go away. They arent allergies....which would be a more permanent thing. Gluten is the intolerance which would be life long....I dont know why Enterolab groups these other food intolerances into the same category....saying that they should be avoided for life in order to prevent further damage?? Since when does an egg intolerance cause the same type of damage as gluten?? I could never wrap my head around this logic. :unsure:

I believe that *while* there is still damage and *while* these intolerances are present due to leaky gut or whatever....then yes, these other food intolerances could keep the intestinal lining inflamed and prevent healing. However, after the intestinal lining is healed and a persons health is restored...I'm pretty sure the intolerances would no longer be an issue because they would no longer be leaking out of the gut and the immune system would have settled down not having all these food proteins to deal with. That was always my belief anyways.

He has lecture notes on his site about gluten antibodies. Basically they go down, but very very slowly. And it does require very good adherence.

Hmmm... just to turn things around on you. Why would you believe that your body would forget about one protein being a foreign invader (lets say casein) before another? In another discussion (autoimmune one) we're having, someone said the body remembers these things for 30 years or more. Basically for life.

Maybe when I've got some spare $$$ I'll test again and see. In the interest of scientificness!

Or maybe I'll just go shoe shopping or something....

:lol::lol:

I know what I would do.....

Nancy,

I think that with a leaky gut the immune system is basically going to be *highly* reactive to all sorts of "invaders". Take away the leaky gut and eventually the immune system is going to calm down and stop fighting all these antigens simply because healing has taken place.

For example....When I was really sick I was reacting to just about every chemical there is...I had to hold my breathe when driving cuz of all the fumes from cars, I was reacting to newspaper ink, carpet fibers, etc. As I improved these things lessened and now I dont react to any of these things...I cant even smell them anymore...whereas before they would overwhelm me. I still react to perfumes and cleaning agents and those types of chemicals but my immune system has recovered somewhat and I'm not reacting to *everything* and to the degree that I once was. Its the same with foods...I can tolerate more now. I dont think its about the immune system *forgetting* necessarily....its more about recovery. My immune system has recovered somewhat and can now tolerate more foreign invaders.

Has anyone who had positive antibodies to casein, soy or yeast from Enterolab retested to see if they go away?

Interesting question, and I'd like to know the answer myself. I never tested positive to the EnteroLab tests, but I do have two genes for gluten intolerance. I was also off dairy and gluten for so long (7 months) before doing the test, I didn't test positive. I would like to try the soy as I recently tested positive for that on a blood test. I guess I'll wait 3 months though soy free. It is expensive, but I'm one of those people who needs the concrete evidence, so it's worth it to me.

    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
    • Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high(but no one ever retested it), vit d and a couple others were low. I have tested positive for labs used to evaluate malnutrition, but it's been q couple of years since they've done those. Just going to put it on the back burner for now I guess. Can't afford to lose much more weight, but they tend to get more serious the lower my BMI goes(not on purpose, I'll have periods where I can gain a bit because I'm not vomiting a lot. Past two days I've been throwing up again after I eat.) Maybe my next colonoscopy will finally show something useful.  It's just 3 years this time and I've been arguing about my gut for 18 years now so what's a little More? 
    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
