  3. I think the sensitivity MAY be gone and not should be gone. It depends on the immune response mounted. Antibodies do cross react so maybe there is some cross reaction going on...
  4. They may also be due to a zinc deficiency. Mine are and have to take zinc daily or else I get them.
  5. Deb, the life of antibodies vary a lot. Some viral and bacterial diseases we are immune to for the rest of our lives and others we are not. I know they (especially viruses) change...
  6. Thank you all for the responses. I really just think I'm frustrated. I was all ready to test positive for wheat but not ready to test positive for milk and veggies. I thought...
  7. Thanks Judy, Actually my itch due to soy is delayed by a day or 2 so I'm confused. I will have to review my immuno again.
  8. I still think my allergy results are bogus. They don't make sense at all. I eat eggs, milk, spinach, onions a lot and almost on a daily basis. I eliminated dairy before and it...
  9. So I tested positive for Onions the most, and then 1+ for: string beans cow's milk (what should I drink if I'm allergic to cow's milk and soy (altough york didn't find that?...
  10. Hi, I got my test results today. I'm a little confused by them but thought I would let you know I got them. I think it took 4 to 5 weeks.
  11. I mailed mine 3 weeks ago and hope to hear soon (expecting to wait 4-6 weeks). Do you think I should contact them after 8 weeks. Glad you heard.
  12. I went there this weekend and they told us after a half hour of waiting that they were out of most fish and only had shrimp and lobster. I won't go there again.
  13. Hey Kandee, I got my kit from York and it took like 1.5 weeks to get here. It wasn't hard to do and I sent it off. I hope I hear from them soon. Just wanted to let you know...
  14. I think I found out somewhere that Great Smokie labs charged $525. I don't think I found it on the webpage, I think someone else said it was that much on another message board...
  15. Ok, it is Great Smokie Labs: http://www.gsdl.com/home/assessments/finds...immunology.html They were recommended by a lady with Celiac here. It took her a while to get dxed...
  16. Here is what York labs said: From: "York Nutritional Laboratories, Inc." <info@yorkallergyusa.com> Add to Address Book To: "'Melanie'" <fairybug02@yahoo.com>...
  17. So I'm having bad symptoms again and have decided I have to have some sort of test done even though I can't afford it at all. I think I will go with York labs but I'm wondering...
  18. My understanding is if you don't have an official dx even if you have abnormal blood work, your insurance co won't take the blood work as a dx or problem. Your doctor has to write...
  19. I have like this weird film around my feces. It is kind of amber in color. Sometimes it just comes out and no feces. It is gross. My feces doesn't look abnormal or float. Is...
  20. I thought the orange drink was yummy! It's not bad at all. A little boring so bring something to read.
  21. I'm confused about this too because I'm wondering if I'm just allergic to wheat. You should be able to have barley and rye if you are just allergic. Someone also told me I should...
  22. I think using York labs (and they do seem legit to me) would be great because then you can see if you are allergic to other foods that may be causing you not to feel great. ...
  23. What is wrong with Salsa? Why can't we eat so many restaurant salsas? It has something to do with vinigar right? Can someone explain it to me? Is salsa wheat free or just not...
  24. Soy makes me Itchy!!!! It makes my ears and neck itchy first and then spreads. I've found that I can eat soy lechtin without any problems. It isn't hard, as people have mentioned...
  25. I was thinking about getting Bob's red mill garbanzo bean flour to make pizza crust. I love chick peas and it sounds tasty as a pizza crust (although I know it won't taste exactly...
