Celiac.com 11/15/2018 - Gluten-free products, marketed as such, were largely unknown 20 years ago, but the gluten-free industry is set to reach an estimated $2.34 billion in sales by 2019. That’s more than double figures for 2014. The growth has been exponential.
What sets gluten-free foods apart from other culinary trends or diet fads is that they address a legitimate health concern that affects millions of people around the world.
With the massive influx of gluten-free products, and the expansion of “gluten-fre...
Celiac.com 11/14/2018 - You don’t have to be a researcher to figure out that, for all the improvements in gluten-free food products in the last few years, gluten-free foods are still expensive and largely inferior in terms of quality and nutrition compared to their non-gluten-free counterparts. Most of the locally available gluten-free flour products are developed by large U.S. and European companies with global distribution. This can mean high local prices. Higher prices mean that some gluten-free products can remain out o...
Celiac.com 11/13/2018 - Ubiquitin is highly conserved across eukaryotes and is essential for normal eukaryotic cell function. The bacterium Bacteroides fragilis is part of the standard human gut microbiome, and the only bacterium known to encode a homologue of eukaryotic ubiquitin.
The B. fragilis gene sequence points to a previous horizontal gene transfer from a eukaryotic source. The sequence encodes a protein (BfUbb) with 63% identity to human ubiquitin, which is exported from the bacterial cell.
Is molecular mi...

She has a very elevated TTG that is indicative of celiac disease and should be confirmed by obtaining iintestinal biopsies. Not positive in the EMA? Me too. I did not even have a positive on the TTG. I tested positive on the DGP IgA. My biopsies revealed some moderate to severe patches of damage.
Keep her on gluten until the endoscopy. THIS IS CRITICAL! Do NOT go gluten free yet! All celiac testing requires you to be on a full gluten diet.
This thread has some discussion about the EMA titer.
Yes, the IGA test sounds high. The lab should provide a results range to match them up against. It only takes one positive antibody to have celiac disease. Although there are different types of antibodies, IgG, IgA etc, all of them can cause damage.
The endoscopy is used to confirm damage to the villi lining of the small intestine. ...
