Are you serious? I was breast fed and I have several symptoms as well as DH. Symptoms. Just waiting on a diagnosis to confirm what I already know. And I have a son who displays symptoms that was breast fed as well. BTW I also don't fit the typical caucasian profile.

Not sure I can accept this. I breast-fed all of my children for 9 months to a year, no solids until their sixth months. I have one celiac for sure, another gluten intolerant.

I'm greatly in favor of breastfeeding, but have to question this one.

I'm greatly in favour of breastfeeding too, but I was breastfed for a year and my mother was breastfed, and I grew up in a wholefoods household and we both are celiac. These kinds of articles give false hope that if you breastfeed your child won't become celiac. There are so many factors we all know that isn't the case.

I sent this to my children. For once they get some positive information from me. They were mostly only breast fed for 1 year.

I recall a doctor saying to me that they do not often see babies who are breastfed and sick. Mine had some ear infections. Anyway I have been wondering if it could have related to my Celiac.

Once I had a sunflower seed coming out with my milk. Doctors told me it couldn't happen. Well, I know it did. I hope you all don't try it. At any rate my digestion wasn't working very well.

I did not breastfeed my daughter and she has celiac. I have blamed myself for 9 months. Your stories about still having it despite breastfeeding eases my guilt a tad.

Let's be clear - misleading headlines and some blatantly incorrect information aside, this is merely referring to studies which show fewer breastfed babies get celiac than those who are breastfed, and if they do get it, they are more likely to get it at a later date. It does NOT mean it PREVENTS celiac in the population as a whole (blame the misleading article title for that mistake) and it does not mean that it celiac won't happen in breastfed individuals. It's unfortunate that articles are written this way, but the studies still are what they are.
