Irish, I'm not trying to argue with you. Honestly. I'm just pointing out why some folks believed one could have celiac without the genes - because we read it here. Now we know better. But any newbies (or even "oldbies" like myself) could click on many threads and get the wrong idea. That second thread I posted was only a month old and in it, even one of the mods said it was possible.
I guess I was just trying to smooth things out on this thread because it looked like it was getting a bit heated. Someone had the wrong info, but they got it here so they believed it. Some other folks had the latest, most up-to-date info that refutes previous info from this site. Personally, I feel like I learn something new every day here and I'm grateful that you and some of the other long-time members continue to educate us all.
