i would suspect continued glutening.  take the household gluten free, and see if that helps.

not having DQ8 or 2 is NOT an absolute that you can't have/develop celiac disease.

#895818 I Have Some Newbie Questions About Celiac Disease

the diabetics that you view as cured are no more cured than a gluten free celiac.  They are both using diet to control their conditions.

#895654 Testing Question After Gf

Posted by on 13 November 2013 - 02:29 AM

Just wanted to add that another option for you would be to get the gene testing.  If you're negative for the Celiac gene, then you cannot have Celiac - you most likely have gluten sensitivity.  No need to do the gluten challenge.  That said, I agree with the others that 1) your doctor is an idiot and/or ignorant and 2) you'd have to do a gluten challenge to get a reliable Celiac test at this point.

FYI, we have more than one biopsy proven celiac that does don't have those genes that post on this board.

#895236 Question About Genetic Testing

Posted by on 08 November 2013 - 10:49 AM

This isn't true.  At least not with current knowledge.  If you do not have a DQ 8 or DQ2 gene, you cannot have Celiac.  The DQ8 is the least common.  Only around 5% of people have this gene.





Last time I read, those two account for 98+% of celiacs, that leaves a few "unaccounted for".  Raven is a biopsy dx celiac, I do believe, and she has neither.....other countries recognize other genes.

no.  you can have celiac without DQ8 or 2.  and no, you husband contributed one gene to your daughter, he has two, you don't know which the other is.

#893044 Muscle Weakness And Pain

Posted by on 22 October 2013 - 09:18 AM

Vit D was at 38 in July doc says normal
B12 was at 482
Ferritin 31 just this month
Magnesium was 1.9

Kaiser doctors say all normal. The only abnormal was very low alkaline phosphate and they said its not a concern :-/

Vitamin D should be over 50, b12 over 500 (that one is close) ferritin I am not sure.. and magnesium should be in upper range of normal , ie closer to 2.5.  good luck

and if the little red dots are petechial, perhaps some K2?

#887923 Is It Necessary To Have A Bone Density Test If Blood Work Is Normal?

remember, the blood levels are the last place the def is going to show.  Homeostasis needs to be maintained or you will die.

be careful of too much Ca++, my GYN doesn't recommend supplementing any more, r/t cardiac issues.  Vit D + K are big issues with bones.

read up on any  of the bone building meds, before you take!
