Is There An Expert In Immunology Here?

Recommended Posts

I have studied celiac disease, and I want to share this article with you. The only thing that it does not cover is how gluten makes it through the tight gap junctions of the small intestine. The article focuses on immunology.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1716218/

Also, I don't think it takes months in many cases for antibody levels to increase in response to consuming gluten. We were going to try the gluten challenge with my 6 year old son, so we gave him gluten for 3 days and he had to stop the challenge. We went in to have his blood drawn and his tTG went from 9 to 17 after 3 days of gluten!

Thanks for the great article. I did not find that one in my research.

Maybe kids produce the antibodies in the blood quicker than adults do.
