I came across this study today and was surprised with the results, after reading on these boards about the DGP. Any thoughts?

I saw that study too, wembles, and found it interesting. Dr. Rodney Ford believes that the value of the DGP lies in predicting who will go on to develop celiac disease; i.e., that it picks it up much earlier than the tTG which is measuring damage which is already present, whereas the DGP picks up early celiac before the villi become involved. The study does not evaluate how many of the patients showed inflammation and beginning signs of celiac - Marsh 1 and Marsh 2 on the scale; remember you have to be Marsh 3 to be diagnosed as celiac, i.e., with already some villous atrophy. Dr. Ford has had patients with positive DGP and negative biopsy who, upon retesting a year or two later, have become positive.

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
