Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.



    Be the change you wish to see in the world!

I agree that it the cancer treatment should be a family decision. Cancer is fought by the whole family not just the individual who has the disease.

I'm a firm advocate for childhood immunisation. I watched by baby brother suffer through whooping cough. I would never willingly make a decision that could put my child at risk of suffering like he did.

When I was five my cousin who was recovering from polio, used to sleep in my room when she was she was in town for her polio checkups. Her parents used to strap her into a brace at night to help keep her limbs straight. I used to be so afraid that there would be a fire in the house and we wouldn't be able to get her out.

Because we don't see these diseases anymore and I think it could be easy to become complacent about the importance of being immunised against them.

Just my view.
