Irish Heritage And Celiac's

Recommended Posts

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.

Never heard about the % of Italians--I'm all Italian, both mom & dad. I think my mother and 1 sister have it but they aren't doing anything about it at the moment.

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 :)

Yeah! I'm not the only one anymore. :D

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.....

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.
