We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Mom was 100% Swedish, some of which had some German heritage from back in the early 1800's. My Dad didn't know his ethnic background. He had ruddy olive skin and black hair. We figure most likely Native American, but maybe Italian, maybe Spanish. Or a mix of a few things? I've always been curious, so I'm going to get my genetics done someday and find out.

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
