I had this testing done also and found it to be
right on in some areas and probably bogus in others.
I did test positive for some beneficial foods like
tomato (which I can eat just fine) and onion
(also fine). I've had some trouble re-introducing
some of my other positives like sesame (and for
some reason everyone I know who's had this test
has gotten a positive for sesame. Did you?) and
lettuce. I also tested positive for oyster, which
I never eat.
Most impressively, I tested positive for brewer's
and baker's yeast, and since I have a bad yeast
problem anyway, this made a lot of sense. I didn't
test positive for any of the grains, even though
removing them as part of the ER4YT program has been
really helpful. Go figure.
My mother did the test after I did and we had about
a 75% correlation in our results. This seems a
bit fishy to me, unless heredity plays a big part
in it. We're both type Os.
I'd be real interested in that article on the ELISA
testing, Ed. Please keep us posted on that.
