Irish Heritage And Celiac's

My husband and daughter have celiac. My husband's mom was a MCCoy. Lots of Scotch Irish on her side of the family. She definitely had all the symptoms; though, since my husband was diagnosed a few months after her death from intestinal cancer the connection was never made.

Okay, I am 100% Polish!!! I am not dx yet, but I know my problems have something to do with gluten. My fam. came over on the boat 2 generations ago on one side and the other 3 generations. So what are you guys telling me? I'm crazy after all!?? Where are all of my Polaks to prove me right!?!

I'm the Celiac in my family. My dad is Scotch-Irish and my mom is a mixture but mostly Scandanavian.

My husband's family is Irish; his sister, 1st cousin and half great aunt have Celiacs.

My IgG came back positive last week.

I'm part Irish and part Spanish (probably Mayan as well but not sure). I say I probably have about 25% Irish from my mother's side and 75% Spanish from my father's side.

Carol :unsure:

Rachel .... now there is two of us. I'm also part Spanish :)

Mom's side: Italian, Native American, and possibly English

I am second generation Irish. One set of Grandparents came from County Cork and the others came from Belfast. The only side that had the symptoms were the ones who were from Cork. They were "country people". The other side that was from Belfast didn't have any signs from celiac disease, but there was Diabetes and Colon and Prostate Cancer. I was really happy to claim all this Irish heritage until I got diagnosed. Now I know why we put so much stock in the potato.....

Hi. Just wanted to chime in. Another Irish lass here! I'm gluten sensitive (and I have autoimmune thyroid disease). I suspect my mom, sister, and grandmother are as well. I have Irish heavily on both sides. I also have German heavily on one side.

I have gotten Celiac from my dad, who has it also. On my Dad's side from where I got it he is almost 100% Irish. So I got it from my Irish heritage.

On my mom's side I have English, German and Irish.

This thread is a monster!!

I am 50% Irish (as my Irish Grandma reminds me) and 50% Pennsylvania Dutch (DEUTSCH).

If anyone is interested in a brief list of the possible reasons for the term "Pennsylvania Dutch" here is a link.

Irish and French-Canadian-Indian. That second one is all one. My great grandmother was Indian and lived on a reservation in Canada. She had a tribal name and also a French name.

My son is Irish, Italian, and English and he is a Celiac. But it is passed on in my fathers side of the family who is half Italian, half English, no Irish. I read early on when my son was first diagnosed that this illness is predominant in the northern European counties.
