  1. Hi again and in clarification of my original posting on this string I was hoping that some very knowledgeable members would read the article on site and tell me whether or not I am reading it correctly ie. there are 3 theories on the cause of celiac disease and that the gluten theory is only one - the important aspect that the cause is only at theory state and not absolute scientific fact. If I am incorrect then could someone lead me to where I can read the scientific fact? to find the article in question: go to Site Index - Research Data on celiac disease, GI, etc - then go to Studies on celiac disease and GI and go to the bottom to find the article I mention in my first message entitled "toxicity mechanism of wheat and other cereals in celiac disease. thanks folks. centeron.
  2. I am wondering if it has been absolutely scientifically proved that gluten is the antagonist with those with celiac or the cause of it? I notice an article on site entitled "Toxicity Mechanism of wheat and other cereals in celiac disease". In that article they mention 3 theories : 1. the glutan-lecithin theory; 2. peptidase deficiency 3. primary immune defecit. This leads me to believe that the gluten relationship is not proven absolute in either instant. I have not been diagnosed with celiac disease - I had an endoscopic test for general examination of bowel which was basically negative exept for small ulcer only several months ago but also did a single blood test for celiac disease with same gastro doctor which came back negative. I have fibromyalgia dignoses for many years and have been really conscious of food intake and a friend with celiac disease keeps wanting to insist I have celiac disease although no weight or diarhea problems but exhaustion and sore muscles. In any event I did some self muscle testing (new age thing?) for senstivities of many things and all such testing appeared to give me back reasonable results until I got to the celiac disease and gluten thing. The testing and several retesting showed I could not tolerate wheat but could tolerate barley rye and oats. The testing showed I was not gluten sensitive but I did have celiac disease. I have only recently gained a lot of confidence in this muscle testing as I used it to properly self diagnose a tilted hip which I confirmed by certain angle of my legs over too much to one side when I put my legs up against the wall into a V. So, any comments out there?
