I'm the Celiac in my family. My dad is Scotch-Irish and my mom is a mixture but mostly Scandanavian.

My husband's family is Irish; his sister, 1st cousin and half great aunt have Celiacs.

My IgG came back positive last week.

I'm part Irish and part Spanish (probably Mayan as well but not sure). I say I probably have about 25% Irish from my mother's side and 75% Spanish from my father's side.

Rachel .... now there is two of us. I'm also part Spanish :)

Dad's side: Irish and French. My dad (and some of his family members) has had terrible digestion problems for a long time, but he won't be tested for celiac

Mom's side: Italian, Native American, and possibly English

I am second generation Irish. One set of Grandparents came from County Cork and the others came from Belfast. The only side that had the symptoms were the ones who were from Cork. They were "country people". The other side that was from Belfast didn't have any signs from celiac disease, but there was Diabetes and Colon and Prostate Cancer. I was really happy to claim all this Irish heritage until I got diagnosed. Now I know why we put so much stock in the potato.....

Hi. Just wanted to chime in. Another Irish lass here! I'm gluten sensitive (and I have autoimmune thyroid disease). I suspect my mom, sister, and grandmother are as well. I have Irish heavily on both sides. I also have German heavily on one side.

I have gotten Celiac from my dad, who has it also. On my Dad's side from where I got it he is almost 100% Irish. So I got it from my Irish heritage.




On my mom's side I have English, German and Irish.

This thread is a monster!!

I am 50% Irish (as my Irish Grandma reminds me) and 50% Pennsylvania Dutch (DEUTSCH).

If anyone is interested in a brief list of the possible reasons for the term "Pennsylvania Dutch" here is a link.
