Does a negative wheat & Celiac Test mean my son is not gluten intolerant?
Interested in your feedback.
A: That is great that you did an IgG4 sensitivity test and found out what his sensitivity triggers are! Now you know to keep him off milk & eggs, and limit his exposure to cats, dogs & dust, while working on healing his gut. Was the test you did with his blood/serum sample? Just a few things to know on the blood celiac test. The antibodies on the blood test do not show up until there is significant damage to his intestines, so these tests can be false negatives for actual gluten intolerance.
Here is a Salivary Gluten Reactivity Screen test we offer by Cyrex Labs, which can be done at home, then the sample sent into the lab. Please see this link to read further about this test & watch the “Gut-Brain Connection Video” that is in the Description tab, it is very helpful to understand the internal picture.
This can be a very good next step to determine if he is reacting to gluten and if you are still not sure if restricting gluten from his diet is very necessary.
Having a negative IgG4 result to wheat does not mean he would not be reacting to gluten. This is why I still did recommend the salivary gluten test so you can know for sure.
Having a moderate reaction to milk & eggs, can be contributing to further damage to his intestines, so best to keep him off them for a period of time, while you work on healing his gut. After 6 months or longer, you can try adding them back into his diet, if he starts reacting, then you know you need to keep them out for a longer period of time and to continue to work on gut healing. Keeping him on probiotics would be most beneficial to his gut health also.
