Food Intolerances : gluten

PostPosted: Mon May 13, 2013 2:47 pm    Post subject: Food Sensitivity Testing options Reply with quote

Hi Everyone-

I am still rather new to this forum but have found it really helpful. I have celiac disease, microscopic colitis, and eosinophilic esophagitis. I was a life long vegetarian but have just recently started adding in fish and chicken and trying to cut down on all grains due to the risk of CC. About a month ago I was having a really bad flare up despite eating healthy and gluten free. I tried several elimination diets, inlcuding Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and nothing was working so I had to start Budesonide. I am pretty sure I have other food sensitivities and possibly small bowel overgrowth that will show back up as soon as I stop the meds. Not sure how to figure this all out as I think I was reacting to some of the things on the SCD intro diet.

I'm looking in to MRT testing and have also heard about Enterolab & Cyrex. What is the best way to go about doing all of this delayed allergy testing? Is there one I should do before the other? I have a feeling I am sensitive to other grains...which is best for testing for that?

Also- can I do these tests while I am currently on Budesonide?

Thanks so much for your help,
Courtney

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

Hi Courtney,

The primary problem with the SCD is that it allows casein in the diet (the dairy protein found in yogurt, cheese, etc.), and many of us are sensitive to casein.

As long as you have not been using Entocort for more than a few months it should not affect your EnteroLab results, and the EnteroLab tests are much more specific and reliable than the MRT results, so having the EnteroLab tests first is usually the best plan. The reason for this is because MRT often misses critical food sensitivities such as gluten and casein. MRT is better for tracking down less-common food or chemical sensitivities.

I'm not sure about whether or not using budesonide might affect your results of MRT or Cyrex testing. Perhaps someone else might know. If you've been using Entocort for a long time (such as about a year or more), then it could certainly affect some of your Entocort results, also.

You're very welcome,
Tex

I've been on the Entocort about a month now...do you think that is too long?

What tests would you have done if you were me? I only know for sure that I can't have wheat (celiac) but other than that, I have no clue. There has to be other things I am reacting to b/c I can't survive without the Budesonide right now. I don't where to start... Sad

Start with dairy, and if that doesn't help, soy is next. At least that is how it usually goes for us.

One month of use shouldn't cause any significant problems with the tests.

Most members order Panel A plus Panel C, because of the price discount.
