Hi all. I just got my enterolab results and am sort of stunned--I reacted to wheat, milk, soy, chicken/eggs, corn, rice, oats, cashews, walnuts, almonds, beef, pork, tuna, and white potato. I have several initial questions for those of you who are experienced in this.

How can I possibly get enough protein in my diet with these restrictions?

Does this mean that, other than white potato and other night shades, I can eat all vegetables and fruits?

Does this mean that quinoa, millet etc are also suspect? What about GF flour?

Does this mean that all other nuts and seeds are ok?

Any thoughts or wisdom would be appreciated. I certainly expected wheat but all of these? Thanks, Suzanne

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 Suzanne,

It's not that simple. While a test result above 9 is a positive result for wheat, milk, soy, and eggs, the test results for the 11 other antigenic foods have to be interpreted differently. You're probably misinterpreting them. In order to interpret the results correctly, you have to consider both the overall test score, and the individual rankings. The details matter.

There are plenty of other meat options.

No, it just means that they were not tested.

No.

If you will post your results (or PM them or email them to me if you do not want to post them) I will try to interpret the results.

Well, as I mentioned in my email, your test scores are indeed quite high, so you have pretty much interpreted the test results correctly.

Hopefully other members who have similar food sensitivities will be able to offer suggestions to help you redesign your diet.
