Any East Africans With Celiac?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! My 7 year old was recently diagnosed with celiac through an elimination diet and iga blood test. Anyway , the gastroenterologist had a hard time believing that my son is celiac because of his ethnicity .. Which I think is ridiculous !! It's probably because it is unknown disease among west/east African immigrants which is why it's hard to decipher what may be causing their stomach pains .

I agree with your last statement.  If the disease is there, it is there.  There is also no telling what is exactly in one's blood lines back many generations.  


I am my husband's "Silly Yak Girl" :)

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in January 2013. I also have Lupus and Common Variable Immunodeficiency(CVID) for which I am on IVIG.
