Me too!

It just means that you have the less common celiac gene. There are more DQ2s than DQ8s that have celiac....but DQ8s can definitely have celiac too.

It is just risk, it does not say you are gonna get it.

High carbs and eating gluten are known to trigger autoimmunity, as well as stress, smoking, soy and high TSH...
