    • His high test results have me worried that it definitely is coeliac. Hoping against hope it is a false positive caused by his diabetes. Poor kid. He was handling his diabetes really well, hadn't missed a beat and just getting on with it. The coeliac screen has really thrown him though and he's upset and angry that he might be both. I guess we will deal with it and I know there's worse things, it just seems really unfair. Oh well......
    • With his bloods coming back that high there is no chance he is not celiac.  The gene test is not diagnostic. There are rare cases of celiacs that don't have one of the two most common genes.  You may want to go ahead and get the biopsy done if you are choosing to do one. Some doctors will diagnose based on relief of symptoms and decrease in antibodies after the diet has been strictly followed.  Do keep in mind that intestinal damage can be patchy and be missed. He will need the diet even if the biopsy is negative.  Do keep him on gluten until the biopsy is done then take him gluten free. You don't have to wait on the results. Good to hear that you are planning on testing your daughter and don't forget testing on yourself and their father if it hasn't already been done.
    • Hi,  My 24 year old was diagnosed with Celiac Disease just about 4 years ago. She began having a hard time swallowing food and experiencing lots of acid so she had an Endoscopy last year and was positive for EoE. She had another allergy test done just after and found out she is also allergic to yeast. So we add that to her list of things she can’t eat along with shrimp and sesame seeds. We found a great allergist since she has asthma and horrible sinus allergies who was able to work with her GI doctor. Together they have her on a few different medications that seem to be really helping. She still has some dairy, like cheese on her tacos, but not much and stays away from yeast almost entirely. So being a Celiac definitely intertwines with other health issues. Keeping a food diary will be a big help in pin pointing what triggers your EoE.  Once you get a final diagnosis there are wonderful people on this forum to help guide you through this wonderful journey of living with Celiac Disease.   Good luck ☺️
