Don't know where it came from. No aunts, uncles, siblings, parents, or grandparents have it I'm all alone ! lol

I am "assuming" the disease orginated after wheat was introduced into our diets. Like 9,000 years ago but I really have no idea.
Diagnosed with Celiac Disease in March 2004
Postitive tTg Blood Test, December 2003
Positive Biopsy, March 3, 2004

We just did this ethnic question Look under the post "What Is Your Ethnic Origin?" in the Research section to find out where everybody is from.
I love your question about what ancestors had it. I am pretty sure that my dad has it - and that his mom has it - and that his brother and a couple sisters have it - but none of them have been tested. They all have thryoid disease though and serious problems with depression/anxiety so - considering my dad's mom wont even touch grains with gluten (despite never having been diagnosed), the fact that his dad is Scandinavian, and the fact that I have it - I'm thinking the odds are pretty high
I'll get back to you if I can ever get anybody else to be tested I think that my little brother has it too - he always gets a wicked case of diarrhea after he eats a lot of bread or cake or something like that. He's afraid to get tested though so until I make the appointment for him, it's probably not going to happen. *sigh*
These people in my family are a bunch of punks!! But - I can't make them get tested - so.. what's a girl to do?
Positive blood tests 4/29/05 (tTG & IgA)
*Osteoporosis (at 32!)
*Lifelong battle w/depression
*Dental enamel didn't form right when I was little (cavities cavities cavities)
*Neuropsych analysis lists all sorts of learning disabilities - which may be attributed to brain injury from an old accident or may be from celiac, who knows!
Had biopsy May 11th, 2005 - villi are FLAT!
gluten-free since May 11th

I am a mixture of Scottish, Irish, and English. My oldest sister has Celiac too. Probably from my dad, but he won't get a blood test done. -Ginny
