Mom Is Negative For Celiac

Recommended Posts

after torturing her for a yr she finally got the test and is negative on both serology & genetic. i am surprised since all the women on my moms side have stomach problems and my maternal grandma & great grandma died from colon cancer...so is it possible the DQ8 gene skipped a generation and went to me? my paternal grandmother also had colon cancer. im confused but glad my mother is ok- shes 65 and is healthier than me :)


Endoscopy & blood panel all negative 12/09 after being strict w/ gluten free diet

As of 8/09 - Candida Overgrowth, C.difficile overgrowth, elevated fecal anti-gliadin, elevated putrefactive SCFA's

Developed severe lactose intolerance, IBS and food sensitivities in 02 after contracting Giardia from a river in Oregon

Had negative celiac blood work in 02

Elevated stool anti-gliadin Ab (21 with 10 being cutoff for normal) - 2008

Positive for DQ8- 2008

Tested high positive for egg, dairy, soy, ginger, mustard - 2008

Lactulose/Mannitol (leaky gut) test indicated slight intestinal permeability

Genes don't skip generations, they can't. The phenotypic expression of a gene can skip a generation easily if it is a recessive (not automatically expressed in the offspring if the other parent provides a more dominant copy) but that is not what the tests look for. It's not all that improbable that your mom's mother does have 1 copy of the gene but didn't pass it down to your mother while your father's mother had the gene as well and did pass it down to your father who gave it to you.


Receiving a qualified diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome is as useful as a Psychiatrist giving you a diagnosis of "Doesn't Think Right".
