We first started out with a Naturopathic Dr. who stated that just by looking at us, she could see we were dealing with food intolerances! Her blood testing showed our daughter at 13 to have an alkaline phosphatase level SO high, she had to run it 3 times to make sure it wasn't a mistake. Her eosinophils were 7.7% and high lymphocytes. Our son had elevated eosinophils, high lymphocyte count and low WBC. My husband's liver enzymes were elevated. I didn't do blood testing at that time because I thought I was healthy.
Then we used the Prometheus blood test for our daughter, with IgG serological marker for celiac disease detected. My husband's Prometheus blood test was totally negative for any serological markers for celiac. We then proceeded to use Enterolab, using the stool and DNA testing.
Daughter: HLA-DQB1*0201,0301–DQ2, DQ3 In 2005, her Fecal Antigliadin IgA was 51, Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA 37. Microscopic Fecal Fat 174.
In 2009, we retested her with Enterolab because she was totally whacked out—physically and mentally and I had a hunch she was still getting gluten even on our meticulously 'GF' diet. Antigliadin IgA 81, Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA 55 and Microscopic Fecal Fat 578. Amazingly, her numbers were HIGHER after 4 years on a GF diet than while eating full gluten diet!!!
Husband: HLA-DQB1*0201,0503–DQ2, DQ1
Myself: HLA-DQB1*0201,0301–DQ2, DQ3
Son: HLA-DQB1*0301,0503–DQ3, DQ1
All of us, with the exception of my son, had elevated antigliadin IgA and fecal antitissue transglutaminase IgA. Interestingly enough, ALL of us got better and healthier on a GF diet. And even though our son apparently does not have celiac according to his genetics, he now gets just as sick as his sister when he gets gluten—joint pains, lowered immunity, headaches, bone pains, bloody noses, crankiness and poor academic performance.
