I finally can be back with you all. I have really missed things the last two weeks but I have been very ill. I have had an iron infusion and waiting to see if I need a blood transfusion. I have gotten very familiar with my local hospital and staff. And to top it all off when I went to my doctor the first time last week I found out he is leaving at the end of the month. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I continue to heal.

Will do Jenny. It always hard to change doctors....especially if you like the one you have. :(

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Thanks. What they think happened to me was I got a very bad case of the stomach flu which of course caused a nasty case of D. Then the D caused the damage in my small intestine to bleed and cause the significant blood loss I had. My hemoglobin is 8.7 as of today and the doc wants to see if it goes up by Wednesday or if I will need blood the next week. Thanks again for all the kind thoughts and wishes.

Get well soon Jenny. It a lesson for everyone not to take D lightly, or have it continue for any length of time. Glad your back.
