Topics I've Started

Gastritus, Duodemitis, And Esophageal Erosion

12 September 2013 - 10:28 AM

How may people here have Gastritus, duodemitis, and esophageal erosion.
Did you GI doctor say it was from food intoleranc? Has anyone gotten better after they have
been gluten free for a while? I have been off gluten, dary and soy for almost a year, things are
much better but every so often my stomach starts giving me problems and I have painful attacks. My doctor
just ordered a EGD and found these issues. Thanks

Airborne Gluten In The Office

28 March 2013 - 07:19 AM

I happen to work off site 90% of the time but once a week I have to actualy go in and sit at my desk.My desk is directly above the kitchen, I can't smell the food cooking but I seam to get sick the day after I work in the office. Not sure if it's in my head so I was wondering if there is a way to masure airborn gluten?

Help Interpreting My Gene Test Please!

23 October 2012 - 01:35 PM

Hi everyone Iím new here thanks for helping. I have been gluten free for about 3 month and it has definitely changed my life but like most people I still have doubts, mainly because my doctor keeps telling me that itís all in my head because the blood work shows no sign of Celiac or gluten sensitivity. Anyhow my test is listed below and my question is do I have two copies of DQ or not.

PROMETHEUS CELIAC PLUS
COMPREHENSIVE CELIAC EVALUATION (SEROLOGY AND GENETICS)

Summary Interpretation: Celiac disease unlikely. Does not preclude
development of the disease.



SEROLOGICAL MARKERS FOR CELIAC DISEASE NOT DETECTED
Celiac disease unlikely if patient is on a gluten-containing
diet and is IgA sufficient.


Assay Results RESULTS REFERENCE RANGES
-------------------------------- --------- ---------------------
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Ab.IgG(DGP,IgG) <0.4 <4.9 EU/ml
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Ab.IgA(DGP,IgA) 0.3 <6.1 EU/ml
Anti-Human Tissue Transglutaminase
IgA ELISA (TTG IgA) 0.1 <10.3 U/ml
Anti-Endomysial IgA IFA (EMA IgA) Negative Negative
Total Serum IgA by Nephelometry
(TOTAL IgA) 93 <3 yrs: 8-220 mg/dl
3-13 yrs: 41-395 mg/dl
>13 yrs to Adult: 44-441 mg/dl

CELIAC RISK GENES DETECTED: DQ2.2 (HLA DQA1*0201:DQB1*0202)
and other non-risk alleles.


CATEGORY# DQ GENOTYPE INCREASED RISK RELATIVE RISK
--------- ----------- -------------- -------------
2 DQ2/ other <1X LOW
low risk gene



Most celiac patients carry either DQ2(about 95% of celiacs) or the DQ8
haplotype(about 5% of celiacs). There are two DQ2 haplotypes, but only one
DQ8 haplotype-specific combinations may confer different risks for the
development of celiac disease.
