I found this great video from Dr Peter Osborne (1 of the leading Gluten Dr's/Researchers). Since i'm kind of new here and don't know where this kind of stuff belongs I'm posting it here. Sorry if it's in the wrong forum. Any how, If you about 30 minutes it's worth your time...

I hadn't seen this before. It explains well why some of us don't seem to be able to tolerate any grains.

Just watched the video clip - I have the very good book 'Dangerous Grains' by James Braly which covers the same subject.

I agree with it completely as I quickly discovered that I cannot eat any of the grains including rice. I don't eat corn anyway as my thyroid medication contains trace maize starch and I don't want to antagonize corn!

Well worth watching - anyone who hasn't.

My food intolerance test showed I was intolerant of both corn and rice! This just firmed up, for me, the information that Dr. Osborne puts out is right for me!

I found this great video from Dr Peter Osborne (1 of the leading Gluten Dr's/Researchers).

Though he may call himself "1 of the leading Gluten Dr's/Researchers", I don't think that any of the actual leading gluten Dr's would agree with that. I don't think that he has published any gluten research. He is not a medical doctor. I would call the video his opinion rather than the opinion of the medical community.

This was posted to not only help people with C.D. to try and understand what they have but to also help with family members (brother, sisters, children, parents). Just because you don't tests "positive" for C.D., it does not rule out a Gluten Allergy. Gluten Allergy is far more common than C.D. and just as devastating.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
