Has anyone had both the Food allergy panel blood test and the fecal test to see if they agree? I had the ELISA about 4 years ago which indicated I am intolerant to numerous foods. I have tried very hard to eliminate those foods. I had been given the dx of IBS a few years ago. I found a new GI doc in March and he started me on the low-fodmap. It provided some relief but I still had issues with abdominal pain and diarrhea. I had a colonoscopy with biopsies in August and MC was found. I am so glad to have found this forum which is loaded with information. I was not aware of the fecal test. I hate to spend the money for it if I am going to get similar results to the blood test. Any thoughts?

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 Julie,

Sorry, I overlooked your post originally. Welcome aboard.

The primary differences between all the blood tests and the stool tests is that for food sensitivities, the stool tests will give accurate, reliable, and repeatable test results, and the blood tests will not. Blood tests for the most part are good for skin and respiratory allergies, but pretty much useless for detecting sensitivities to ingested food.

Again. welcome, and please feel free to ask anything.

Tex

Thanks. This info was helpful. I have another question. I just read on here somewhere that I should avoid brown rice. Egads! My go-to foods of rice cakes, rice crackers, hot rice cereal, cold rice cereal, pasta, etc all list brown rice as the main ingredient. Do I have to give them up also???

That depends on whether the extra fiber is enough to keep your intestines irritated enough to prevent remission. We all have our own tolerance limit in the amount of fiber we can tolerate in our daily diet, and if we exceed that amount, it can sabotage our recovery. The difference between brown rice and white rice is that white rice is brown rice with the hull (which contains most of the fiber) removed. Most consumers mistakenly believe (because of all the propaganda from so-called health experts) that brown rice is healthier (because of the higher fiber content). Yes, it contains more nutrients, but the fiber is constantly tearing the cells in our colon,so that they have to be replaced. We don't need that level of irritation. Nobody does. Thanks to MC, we have intestines that are hypersensitive to irritation, so we have to limit the amount.

The food manufactures just try to to cater to demand, so they promote brown rice also. Personally, I never eat the stuff. I'll choose white rice every time. You'll have to determine how much is too much in your own situation. I hope that some of this is helpful.
