Celiac Disease And Other Food Intolerances

Hello, I was found to be Celiac through the Enterolab testing. It didn't show up in the celiac blood panel. Other Enterolab results showed casein intolerance. I just got back the egg, yeast and soy and it showed mild reaction to egg and a high reaction to soy. I just don't know what to think right now as it seems there are so many foods I will have to take out of my diet. Could there possibly be a mistake? Once one stops eaten gluten is it possible the other food intolerances might go away?

HI

ACTUALLY I THINK THAT YOU'RE LUCKY TO HAVE FOUND THIS OUT ALL AT ONCE..AS I THINK YOU'LL HEAL FASTER.

I WISH I HAD CUT DAIRY, SOY, CASEIN ALONG WITH GLUTEN WHEN I FIRST STARTED.

TESTED WITH THE LAB AFTER 20 MONTHS gluten-free AND THESE SHOWED UP.

GOOD LUCK AND KEEP ASKING QUESTIONS AND WE'LL HELP ALL WE CAN

I think Enterolab only tells you if you are gluten intolerant. Did they do the gene testing as well, find it positive, and say you are celiac?

I had positive results to everything (I see you don't mention yeast -- I'm jealous :lol: )

I emailed Enterolab and asked what the margin of error was, since the yeast score was so low. (The egg one was low too. But that's because I've tried to avoid eggs for years since they often caused gastric distress.) I didn't get an answer to that one.

The answer they gave me would indicate that the other intolerances are permanent. If you don't eat the foods the antibodies go down. But if you start eating them again, they go up. I've heard people say that after 6 months or a year they have been able to eat things they couldn't tolerate before. But I don't remember anyone saying this who had had the Enterolab testing.

The only research I've found relates to yeast. It found that some celiacs stopped creating the antiyeast antibodies after a time on a gluten-free diet. The abstract didn't mention them avoiding yeast.

I'm planning on staying away from everything long enough to cure the malabsorption and for the antibodies to clear out of my system. I might then try to introduce back the yeast and then the soy. Cutting out the soy is difficult since I'm vegetarian. Eating at home isn't that big a problem, but lacking soy cuts out a lot of what I can eat in a restaurant. So many Asian dishes, for instance, have soy sauce in them. A couple times restaurants have made adjustments for me, but the results have been rather tasteless.

I don't know I'm giving you any answers. Just trying to tell you that you are not alone. For what that's worth :lol:

You might want to cut out both egg and soy for a while. Not with the paranoia required for gluten, but be very careful. After you've been gluten-free for a while start adding back small amounts of egg. If you feel bad when you eat it, then you can't eat it. Some people find they can tolerate a little, or just whites, or just yolks.

Then do the same with soy. My opinion is: if you are producing antibodies, but it doesn't make you feel bad, then limit that particular food, but don't stress about it.

I agree with this. Cut it out entirely in the beginning, then challenge it after a few months to see if you react. I did this with dairy, my score was 30, and I have no problem whatsoever with dairy. It doesn't bother me at all. I can't really explain why my score was so high ... but there is no test that is perfect.

I had a negative celiac blood test, negative biopsy and positive Enterolab. I am very sensitive to gluten and need to avoid it as seriously as a celiac.

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
