Hope it's the best you've had in awhile.
We appreciate your willingness to help others and share everything you've researched these last few years.
So glad you're my friend!
Love and hugs coming your way.
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.

Wishing you happiness always,
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
