Hi, I was exposed to a pesticide about 2 mos. ago and have been seeing a naturopath. There's a question as to why my body reacted so strongly to the pesticide. Anyway, he did a heavy metals allay (test) on me and it came back that I don't have much of a problem with that (urine test). So, he said that could indicate I have gluten intolerance. So I did a gluten intolerance blood test (gliadin). They tested IGg and IGa (hope I wrote those right, I can't find the copy of the test right now). Anyway, they both showed up negative. Negative was anything below 11 and the grey area (Forget what they called it) was from 11-17; with positive being above 17. My IgA was 4 and my IgG was 8. I hadn't been eating much gluten before the test, but they said they add gluten to the blood in the lab, anyway? It all sounds odd and I know that this place is VERY money grubbing. They want me to now redo heavy metal tests, gluten tests, etc. My accupuncturist (who also works there but is honest) doesn't thinks I have adrenal fatigue; and my colon therapist said that if I had gluten intolerance, I'd probably have noticed bloating, stomach upset after eating bread, etc.. As far as I know there is no family history of gluten intolerance, definetely not of celiac. But, this Dr. says 8 is still to high, even though it's in the negative range. Any advice?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
