Hi everyone!

I'm just curious about the nationalities of everyone to see how many of you fit the "Northern European" classic, aspect of Celiac Disease, and how many of you are something completely different. I'm wondering because I am Polish and German and a lot of doctors in the begining, wrote off testing for Celiac just because of my background.......

Thanks! :D

My younger son is the one in our family with Celiac. His maternal ancestry is Irish (mostly) with a bit of Scottish and Welsh thrown in. On his paternal side they are English and either Irish or Scottish (can't remember) and Grampa supplies us with some Hungarian or Czech (they're not really sure...the surname is Czech, but they spoke Hungarian).

Put us all together and we're Canadian.
