Celiac And Family Genetics

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does there have to be a history of Celiac in your family in order for you to have it? I don't know of any Celiacs in my immediate family, not saying past relatives didn't have it. There have been a lot of young deaths in both sides of my family. Also, I am Scotish, German and Polis do these account for northern Europe as I understand blood lines from those areas have a higher risk.

My Dad and uncles all had similar symptoms to mine, they passed away long before we became knowledgeable about gluten intolerance. I think one of my sisters has it but she is in denial.

I don't have any history of Celiac in my family that I know of, but I do have a family history of diabetes, (and also of generalized undiagnosed food intolerances), and I hear that diabetes and Celiac can ride on the same gene. Thus I guess from that gene, you could end up with either diabetes or Celiac? I'd choose Celiac over diabetes.

I think "Celiac" is a very new term. If you crawl back a generation, you might find first degree relatives with tummy problems, gas, diabetes, cancers, colon issues, osteoporosis, diabetes.

Certainly, not all diseases stem from Celiac. Not by all means. But, some may have been a contributing factor as a side effect of Celiac.

The incidence of celiac disease is rising. That means there will be first cases in a lot of families.
