Hi Sammykins.

I have blood test and biopsy proven Coeliac disease - and I don't have either the DQ2 or DQ8 gene. So it is possible.

But if you are off gluten and feeling better then you should stay off gluten. It's not worth making yourself sick again just for a definite diagnosis.

In Topic: Wheat In Nz And Australia Has No Affect On Me

I'm from Australia too and I have no idea why you didn't react to the wheat here in Australia. We certainly have a high rate of Coeliac disease here. In fact our diagnosis rate is higher than the U.S..

Australia has a massive wheat industry, so you were probably eating wheat that was grown in Australia - not the usual GM patented wheat grain that you might be eating in the U.S..

But Australian wheat isn't anything special, and is certainly still chock full of gluten and may well be genetically modified as well.

It took me more than two and a half years on a very strict gluten free diet before I really started to feel better. Some people just take a while to heal. My specialist says it is not uncommon.

The one thing I probably should have done differently was be a bit kinder to my intestines while they were healing. I should have ditched coffee and alcohol and stuck to things that were easy to digest. I think an SCD diet is probably not a bad idea for a while.

Still no vegan bread on the market.

Orgran bread mix can be made as vegan bread. I've tried it that way and it is quite nice. But it does taste better when you add the egg and milk powder.

I think that Silly Yaks bread is vegan but you need to check that because I'm not certain.
