Type 1 Diabetes Linked To Immune Response To Wheat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I found this on the American Celiac website:

One negative aspect of the TTG antibody is that it can be falsely positive in a patient who has another autoimmune condition. TTG false positivity has been described in patients with both type I diabetes and autoimmune hepatitis. Theoretically, it can also be falsely positive in other autoimmune disease.

I wonder which comes first?

I wonder what they would find if they tested Type2 folks ?

I think if they tested people with a lot of other autoimmune conditions they would find many of them test positive also.
