Well I got my DNA results and I do not have the celiac gene so that does rule out celiac but I do have 2 gluten sensitive genes:

 

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1  0501

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2  0503

 

Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 1,1  (Subtype 5,5)

 

Although I have had many symptoms before going gluten free, to the extent I could tend to my children, many symptoms have cleared up except for the headaches/migraines/feels like brain on fire.  I have been gluten free for 11 months, corn/dairy/soy/nuts free for 8 months.  I still have neurological symptoms and can't tolerate anything except whole foods and 1 fruit, apple.  I actually got head relief when I had a stomach virus because I didn't eat for 3 days. From what I researched, this lab result with a DQ 1 showed that neurological  symptoms are likely to occur.  What specifically got damaged, my central nervous system? I am still on pain meds around the clock, injections of muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory, why is it not better yet? Is it reversible damage? None of my doctors believe this to be the cause because I don't have celiac disease but if I eat anything that I am not tolerating now I go back to my previous symptoms, dizziness, fatigue, feeling out of my body, walking off balance, numbness in my legs and the feeling of inflamed brain on fire.  Why is this still occurring if I have been off of gluten for so long? Am I considered Non-celiac gluten intolerant? Also my daughter was tested and has 1 gluten sensitive gene and 1 celiac gene. We thought for sure she got the celiac gene from my because my husband has no symptoms of anything.  Come to find out she got the celiac gene from him, not me.  Should he go gluten free also? Thank you

I would take your whole home gluten free.  And neuro problems are usually the last to clear, and the easiest to bring back.  So a gluten free home may be nec. for your well being.  Try an elimination diet.  Good luck

I too have very similar neurological symptoms and tested negative for celiac. But I've been 95% better on the gluten free diet. I'm on an elimination diet to determine other food intolerances. What I find is that my neuro symptoms come back if I eat something I'm intolerant of. I had no ideas the nightshades were part of that (tomato, red pepper). So could there be something else in your diet that keeps the symptoms lingering?? It is a very long process figuring out the other foods, but it does work. So far I get symptoms with: prunes, vinegar, almond butter, dairy. Soy, corn, nightshades. Vertigo and tingling seem to be the most common side effects (and bloating!)

    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Yes Sugarcube, i think i had a blood test called TTG IGA ANTIBODY So what does that actually mean?   Why didn't they do a full celiac panel? or is that the next step, but my doctor didn't mention it. I'm just gonna keep eating as normal up to the biopsy, so i get the correct diagnosis.  
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I received the amended records in the mail. I don' think the doctor even read my email with the amendment request since she only corrected one statement I never said...the statement I gave as example while briefly talking to her on the phone the other day. So, I called the office to inquire why the other statements I never said were not corrected. Fortunately, the other staff member answered the phone. I'm surprised she told me this, but it was the best therapy for me so maybe she was meant to say it! She told me she knows what I mean about that one worker because she has to deal with it, too! She said a new office manager starts next week and she gave me her direct emal address to complain about that worker. 
    • Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?
      You've all been so helpful in guiding me what to do.  I did just receive my blood work and have an appt. with my doctor next week.  I wanted her to check it because I have lived a life of being extremely exhausted, migraines/headaches, and anxiety.  My thyroid is balanced and I am healthy (other blood results that were off were low platelet, low protein, high A/G ratio).  I am not good at reading results, but it appears negative to celiac, maybe next steps are trying a gluten-free diet for sensitivity? Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA 2 units 0 - 19 units Negative 0 - 19

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Hello, This is my first post. My 12yr old daughter was diagnosed with ?celiac disease. Her blood test was positive, genetic screen positive and her biopsy abnormal but they are not ready to say she is celiac because her villi are damaged but not gone. We are to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for 6 months. So far (1 month) we have adjusted well. I am learning to bake again using many many many different flours lol. However I cannot find a good sandwich bread. There are good tasting breads with little or no fiber or heavy dense breads that don't make good sandwiches or toast. She has become very constipated on this gluten-free diet because of the low fiber content of the cereal,rice and breads. We were told no oats for the first year? and no or little dairy for the first month. She has been on a low histamine diet for 4 months now as well. My question is what is the best way to make gluten free bread, oven or bread maker? Does anyone have a good healthy recipe for sandwich bread that a kid would like? We normally eat a soft 5 grain bread before gluten-free. Thank you!
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Thanks so much, gluten-free,  in my hypchondriacal panic I saw that website!  It is good to have an endorsement from a celiac.   I remember seeing quite a few reassuring stories in it along the lines that you describe. Funny isn't as because I now feel far less inclined to eat large amounts of carbohydrate now I have cut back a bit.   It seems the more sugar I ate, the more I wanted to eat.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
