LOL! My info is in my signature, but I'll describe.

Father, 50, weightlifts daily, rises at 5 am EVERY morning. Had Mono in college (like me!). Tested negative.

Mother, 51, had every almost every possible illness on earth during childhood (including croup). Tested negative. Also the picture of perfect health.

*both are on the South Beach maintenance diet.

Brother, 24, recent college graduate and (no offense to him!) purveyor of not-so-careful health practices. Voted "Most Likely Candidate for Celiac Disease" by the rest of us. Has gastrointestinal responses (diarrhea) to tomato sauce and most spicy foods (especially sauce on hot wings). Tested negative.

I really wish that a family member would join me in my gluten-free quest...but, God willing, not have to suffer like some of the other Celiacs I know (including myself).

I'm the only one in my family who has it, too.......no grandparents or parents have it......my brother tested negative, but has the gene.

My Mom has it. . .my brother has it. . .and I have it.

I have a grandmother getting tested and am advising an Aunt to, as well.

My asymptomatic father was positive. My VERY symptomatic aunt was positive. This is, this aunt is on my mother's side. So I got it from both directions.
