Nothing too exciting to share.  No immediate reactions to any foods whatsoever and only very mild delayed reactions to whey, cucumber (?), lemon (??), and kidney beans (???).  They tested my blood for antibody activity to dairy products, legumes, nuts, meats, poultry, fruits, veggies, etc.  My anti-gliadan antibody for gluten sensitivity (yet another test for gluten intolerance) was also blazingly negative.
I sent my presents to the parasite guru this week.  Should know those results soon after Thanksgiving.
On a positive note, I have been feeling fairly decent for a few days now and despite some diarrhea I haven't gone more than 3-4 times a day in nearly a week!  SCORE!

Glad to hear the good results! Also glad to hear you have been feeling pretty good these days. Dang, it's nice to not sit on the pot all day, huh?
Let us know what happens with the guru. :-)

Wow Sarita, cucumbers and lemons.  You truly are one of a kind :-) .  I sooo wished your answer was this easy but I'm glad to hear your garden hose has a kink in it for now.  Take care :-)
Take care, Softy

in the UK not sure if its the same in the states they have something like an essential oil a liquid with the essence of the food stuff in it they put a histamine controller on your arm to check the test is working and a line of different substances prick the skin so the allergen soaks into your skin leave it 15 mins and then see if you have reacted to any of the substances. hope that makes sense.
