The statistic would say your wife and baby to be have a 1 in 10 chance of celiac disease. YOu could try genetic testing with a genetic counselor for a more accurate statistic for your family situation. Your wife should really get tested to determine what kind of diet would be the best for her and the baby she is growing. (From your previous posts I didn't think she had been tested.) The baby would get antibodies from her and in breastmilk.

This is just my opinion. I have looked for more information on this topic and breastfeeding and haven't found very much.

Hmmm, I've been wondering along similar lines lately. I am celiac, ds (age 3) is untested but has been gluten-free for 2 yrs (long story), and dh is not celiac. I have been pondering raising all future children gluten-free til age 3 at least because 1-in case they have celiac, but also 2- little kids and food are messy messy messy and I feel better not having gluten all over the house and all over the kid, you know? Until they can be neat, and wash their hands and mouth and face, and dust off their clothes, I don't want them eating it, lol!

Just a thought,

Merika

I assume your wife has been tested to make sure she doesn't have celiac disease? I would go gluten-free while pregnant and BF and it really does make meals easier when everyone is eating the same diet:) My plan is to have all future children DNA tested at birth and if they don't have the gene they get gluten-free diet at home, eat what they want when out. If they have the gene its gluten-free until there teens and rebel and start sneaking gluten (you know its going to happen) then test them. This is what other family members are planning as well since we have such a strong family history of it.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
