Does She Have A Problem?

Testing results from a close relative. Do you think she has any problem with gluten?

Celiac blood test

You can't tell from those results. Mildly elevated anti-gliadin is extremely unreliable and she has no signs of celiac. With the DQ7.5 she could have issues with gluten. The only reliable way to know is for her to try the diet strictly for a while. With the fibro and depression, thyroid problems need to be ruled out.

She also REALLY needs to go off casein along with gluten. There are opiate-like peptides produced from incomplete digestion of both gluten and casein that seem to play a role in autoimmune diseases and fibromyalgia. People are starting to wonder if that's part of how low-dose naltrexone works. Sensitivity to these opiate-like peptides will NOT show up on any sort of gluten or casein intolerance or allergy test.

Thanks, Skylark. I appreciate the info. Her husband is both gluten and casein intolerant so she may be cooking pretty much gluten/casein free already.

If her diet is already low gluten that can cause false negatives on testing. It wouldn't be a bad idea for her to go strictly gluten free and see if it helps.
