  1. Thanks guys. Is there anywhere where one read up a bit on this. Something that is not to technical.
  2. This is my results from Enterolab: A) Gluten Sensitivity Stool and Gene Panel Complete *Best test/best value Fecal Antigliadin IgA 15 (Normal Range <10 Units) Fecal Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA 12 Units (Normal Range <10 Units) Quantitative Microscopic Fecal Fat Score <300 Units (Normal Range <300 Units) Fecal anti-casein (cow’s milk) IgA antibody 13 Units (Normal Range <10 Units) HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201 HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 06xx Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,1 (Subtype 2,6) The first part I can understand but the gene part is a bit confusing. Can someone please help with a short explanation of what it means and what you look for in the gene results.
  3. When you get glutened with cross contamination is the symtoms the same, much milder or different? The reason why I am asking is that my stomach problems went away after taking gluten out of my diet. Some days I will still have a general feeling of being unwell. It's difficult to explain but it feels a bit like having a very mild flu, muscle aches, irretabiliy etc. It does not keep me from functioning properly but is incredibly annoying. Cannot figure out what it is.
  4. I have been gluten free for a few months now and I feel a lot better. Something thats bothering me still is the flu like symptoms. In the beginning I thgouht it is to do with the immune system being impaired and that you are much more succeptable to picking up bugs. I never get it bad so I have to stays in bed but I wake up a lot of mornings where my body feel like the flu is coming up. I am beginning to think that it might be something else I am intollerant to. If it is a food intollerance, what foods can cause this and why? Can it be diary?
  5. Hi Wendy I am also from SA. Have been on the site for a short while but have not found anyone else from SA yet. Leonard
  6. When people talk about an autoimmune reponse, is it something you can actually feel. The reason why I ask is that sometimes I would start feeling funny for no apparent reason. Almost like when you start getting the flu. Sweaty, uncomfortable etc. Could this be a response to Gluten that was ingested recently.
