DQ6/DQ8 Celiac Sprue. Enterolab HLA-DQ B allele 1 *0302:HLA-DQ B allele 2 *0602. This genotype combination gives a strong predispositions to Type 1 Diabetes, Celiac Disease and Leaky Gut Syndrome. One male sibling has Type 1 Diabetes. The DQ6 gives some protection for developing Type 1 Diabetes which lessens with age.
Diagnosed in 2006 at age 70 but have had symptoms of gluten sensitivity all of my life. During the years I was undiagnosed I learned to use many alternative methods to cope with the developing problems of Celiac Disease. Most of these health promoting methods came from the book 'The Cure for All Diseases' by Hulda Clark, PhD, ND and helped keep me functioning and active over the last 25 years. These procedures did not stop the damage caused by gluten so I have had a lot of healing to do but by understanding the underlying problem I am in much better health now than I was 4 years ago.
I have been criticized by the moderators and warned not to refer people to certain alternative websites and not to make diagnoses since I am not a qualified/licensed medical practitioner.
