I was doing some research online and found a study about people born in the summer having a higher risk of developing celiacs

<http://jech.bmj.com/content/57/1/36.abstract>

and I thought that this was interesting because I was born in the spring (may) and no one else in my immediate family has it even though most of them were born in the summer.

well anyways I'm curious to see if this is plausable

I was born in June and one child in August, but my other child was born in December. And not sure if this is counted, but my husband can't tolerate gluten (only found out from him going gluten free with the rest of us) and he was born in April.

February...BUT, I was born in New Mexico, a warmer climate maybe? I dunno lol


Diagnosed with Celiac Disease November 2009

2011:

Anemia is gone for the first time in my life, Yay!

Teeth are cleaner according to my dentist (interesting, eh???)

Eyesight has improved for the first time in my life (another interesting thing!)

**My advice to the newly diagnosed** HANG IN THERE!! It gets better and is so worth the seemly long road to getting better. Just be happy you can make yourself healthy with a diet change, and not have to take pills for the rest of your life. :D

Myself and both children were born in the summer all in the same month. Makes for a pretty boring mother's ring. :lol:

However my mother and my other brother, both who we think had and have celiac, were born in the winter though.

from the votes so far i think that the study has been debunked

So many things wrong with this statement I don't know where to begin... First, the study didn't divide people into 4 groups so you apparently didn't even read the paper. Second, you can't make conclusions about 4 groups from only 13 people. You have no statistical power. Even if a bunch of people on the board answer, you have no information about non-celiac birth rates where they live to which to compare the answers. Birth rates are generally higher in the summer to begin with.

My birthday is in January, my youngest was born in December and my oldest son was born in February(he is not diagnosed but doing a gluten free trial). My father and brother whom I believe have celiac also(won't get tested), birthdays respectively are November and July.


Me:
Celiac disease(positive blood work/biopsy- 10/2008), gluten free oat intolerent, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis/Disease, Raynaud's Disease


DS2(age 9):
celiac disease(positive IgA tTG, no biopsy- 11/2010)


DS1(age 13):
repeated negative bloodwork and negative EGD/biopsy. Started on a gluten free trial(8/2011). He has decided to stay gluten free due to all of the improvements he has experienced on the diet.
