Got My York Allergy Results!

I finally got my food intolerance results. It's one thing to know that you feel sick after eating something but to have it in black and white through a blood test is something else.

It seems that my worst intolerance is to eggs...both the protein and the yolk. ............hhhhhmmmmmmmmmno. At least now I feel better knowing why I was so ill for days after having eggs. the next was milk, then wheat and gluten and a bunch of other things. Soy was listed as a low reaction but it really does a number on me and I have avoided having it. Some nuts but walnuts were ok. There was a lot of information there and I am going to try to the best of my ability to work out my diet. I am already feeling better and have not had diahrea just by avoiding gluten. I also put on 2 lbs! yeah....up to 94!

I went to the GI dr on Monday because of the IBS also acting up. He as pretty knowledgeable in gluten and wants to to a biopsy. At this point I don't want to have it done. He says that he needs it to make a real diagnosis especially since the trans glutaminase test was normal. the Gliadin AB IGg were high....but he said that's not enougn.

At this point I don't need the Celiac diagnosis.....feeling better without the gluten is good enough for me. I am not going to have the endoscopy. I may consider it when I move up North.... but then only at Columbia Presbyterian.

I am so happy I did this test. For me it was sooooooooooo worth the money. Although, I've been told not to rely on it 100%, I feel that it is helping me to get on the right track with my diet and therefore sooooooooo worth it.

Will keep you posted,

Hello! Glad to hear your feeling better. Could you please tell me about the york test? I have heard about them, but I went to an allergy doctor, who gave me the skin prick tests, and said if Im allergic, it will show on these tests. I asked him about blood tests, and he said they arent reliable, how do I know what to believe? Just wondering if someone can help me with advice... thanks..

Hi Dizzy. I was about to ask the exact same question.

Also, does anyone know if this test is available outside America? I'm in Australia. :huh:

Mel, If you are going to go glutenfree now, don't even consider the biopsy at a later date. You will start healing, and so the results might be negative. I am glad that you have answers, and that you now know what to do!

    •   Ironic, We went entirely gluten-free in our home after 2016 for how bad my neurological , joints, mood gets now in addition to my former gi, skin, and other issues . My son shows signs of my early symptoms and voluntarily went off gluten, corn, and milk like me as he did his own food like diary symptom tracking. My daughter continues on gluten outside the home. We warn her of our concern for at times in toddler hood she was constipated and would bloat.  We asked their Dr to test them as I was undergoing my testing and she said no until I had my diagnosis. As we know these things take time and my son went gluten-free . He said after watching mom on my gluten challenge that he will not go back on it .  We await technology further research and we silently watch our soon to be teen girl for we know even if tested negative it can show up one day.  She says I know mom I know. The more Whole Foods here in the home we notice she actually craves gluten / processed foods less and is slowly transitioning as well.  Does your child also naturally eat less gluten and processed as well away from home? I wonder if the taste buds / craving change as the parents diet changes food options.  Thoughts?
    • Funny though, my brother and I were just discussing this. He has celiac and both his son and him are gene positive. Both were TTG/EMA negative but never tested for DGP. My brother had damage on endoscopy. They have not scoped his son. He feels his son is symptomatic but not his daughter.  I have conflicting positive and negative DGP, recent damage on biopsy and negative TTG/EMA. Two years ago my son had negative TTG and DGP. No EMA. I plan to have him gene tested and full antibodies screened again.  My brother has opted to have his children follow a gluten-free diet. I am currently allowing my son a normal diet.  But my own chaos with diagnosis, and my brother's too because he was TTG negative, makes me ultra sensitive to the possibility.  My son's ped doc has a  daughter who was recently diagnosed with celiac.  it was in the family so her mom, my son's doctor, suspected it as soon as she started getting digestive issues and losing weight.  she pretty much told me that she was glad that they didn't put her on a gluten-free diet as a child so she can enjoy eating the things she wanted to Throughout her life.  I have to say I agree to a large extent. There are many diseases that we could get At anytime. we cannot change our lives for that reason alone.  However that being said, my family has both thyroid disease and multiple sclerosis as well.   I know all too well the naive statements and assumptions that doctors can make in the face of science still working to find conclusions.  There are other types of TTG the doctors don't typically test for.  I am well aware of this, and sensitive to it. As a parent, I'm going to allow my son to continue on a normal diet for now, but we are going to pursue testinG  And I'm going to watch it very closely.  
    • It might generate based on traffic searches  or posts etc. My guess. I read them and respond because I wasn't on here as a member in 2012. I only use to visit then. So it's new to me V. happy friday   😋  
    • Just saying her TTg was 0 & her IgA was 27 doesn't tell us anything. Every lab can have different values so we need the reference ranges not just the results. Can you look back at the lab report & get those & post them please? Did they tell you she MUST be eating gluten every single day until all testing is done? Don't make a fatal mistake & take her off of gluten yet.
    • When the doc did the endoscopy, did he take biopsies? How many? From what locations? Get your records!!!! If he didn't take biopsies for celiac disease then he can NOT say you don't have it. 99% of the time, villi damage can not be SEEN by the GI doc during the endoscopy. And yes, the doc has no clue when saying it doesn't matter that you were gluten free for 3 years!
