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.
