Genetic testing cannot be altered by gluten or anything else..


If you have the HLAB27 gene, then it should have shown whenever you were tested.

I think I get DM is coming from, you are from Canada, right? I don't think there is a huge push for genetic markers with our system but go by blood markers. I get the same thing - wherein I am bordering on AS, lupus and other high inflammatory conditions. They measure by ESR and CRP markers along with physical symptoms and x-rays. I don't have any genetic testing to say where I am healthwise. BTW, my ESR and CRP are well controlled now, by diet and supplements alone.  I tested soy this week and you know, it hit me as strong as gluten, even worse, I think. I would love to have a dr work with me testing my blood work as I trial (and error) my diet. They do test for the Rheumatoid factor though, ?, not sure why they don't for other conditions.

Hi Janpell,       Are you a Canadian too?


Thanks for that lead about genetic markers vs a genetic testing. 

That makes sense.

Another thing to study - it never ends LOL.


Good for you for controling your ESR and CRP with diet.


Your comment about the soy turned a few gears in my head.

I remember taking Whey (milk) protein and getting quite a bad reaction.

So I added it to my food diary conclusions.

But now that you mention it, there was Soy isolate added to the powder.

It was just those 2 ingredients because I know a sugar substitute that is in the other protein drinks

causes me to feel like a bus hit me.

One day I'll retry the canned Soy beans but I suspect the soy isolate is more inflammatory.

It was my sons that tuned me onto soy. Both of them are started to react to foods. I made Edamame beans last week and my older boy woke up from 2-5 am from joint pain, my youngest, after eating said "The beans gave my tummy a headache and sore knees". They seem to be way more in tune than me so I tested a small amount of soya sauce - upper neck pain and inflammation in my feet for two days now. I can do soy lecithin though, whew, chocolate! Yep, just keep journaling and watching.

I am Canadian. I envy the Americans when I read how "easily" they get tested for their ailments.
