Any Information On Gluten Sensitivity Links?

08 March 2011 - 06:50 AM

Well I did what I said I wouldn't do, and that is to get "tested" further for Celiac disease. I can tell I have a problem with Gluten and that is good enough for me, however my sister (who I am convinced has a bigger problem than me) refuses to do the gluten free diet, so I got the genetic test to "prove" to her that its a problem that runs in the family.

I have the DQ8 phenotype, and the DQ6.3 phenotype. One allele pair for a susceptibility to Celiac, and one that I have read on here means a susceptibility to gluten sensitivity.

Does anyone know of any links on 6.3 having gluten issues? I would like as much proof as possible before presenting said findings to my sister.

Do You Feel More Mentally Healthy After Going gluten-free?

24 March 2010 - 11:50 AM

I know I for one, after going gluten free have a much easier time regulating my emotions. The wild roller coaster of feelings is gone. My overwhelming anxiety is gone. My depression for the most part is gone. My mania is gone...

Is there anyone that has been diagnosed with depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, or some other form of mental illness that found they had a marked improvement on a gluten free diet, if so what are you recovered from? Also are there any problems that have not improved, or have become worse?
