  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Thanks for your reply, I will be putting her on the gluten-free diet. I don't want her to turn out like me.
  3. Thanks for the reply, I will be putting my daughter on the gluten-free diet. I hope I will see improvement. Good Luck with your son and yourself as well.
  4. Thank you for the information, it is was quite interesting to read. There is a history of celiac disease on my mom's side of the family. My mom had 9 siblings, two have past and died in their 50's. Never diagnosed with celiac, but both died of intestinal cancer. Two other siblings, diagnosed with celiac. My mom has sypmtoms when she is not on the diet. She cheats allot and complains when she feels bad. I have two cousins with symptoms and two sisters with symptoms, but they will not go gluten-free or get checked out. I myself have been on gluten-free diet for two years and noticed a huge difference in my health. I am real curious to know what genes I have and the family members who have full blown celiac disease. My daughter will be going on the gluten-free diet starting the new year whether or not the stool test are positive or not. I have to know if the gluten-free diet will help her. Thanks again for your information
  5. Thanks for the reply. My five year old has an appt the 7th of Dec., with an Pediatric GI. If her test are neg I am still going to have her go on the gluten-free diet. I hope I see improvement soon. Right now she has a severe case of eczema and diarhea.
  6. Hi there, thank you for the information. I know in my heart that I should put her on the diet. I guess I should just get pass the, What Doctor's Think syndrome. My husband is another one who is in denial, who also contributed a gene to our daughter also. He has diabetes (very slim and short stature) and is experiencing bowel issues. He is having a tuff time aknowledging she may be different. We also have a daughter that has ADD, she is next on the list to get genetically tested. Again thank you for your input and God bless you and your family. Leleluna
  7. Hi there, Can anyone tell me if they have had the genetic testing done through enterolab or any lab and has had the test results, HLA-DQ3,3 Subtype 7,9. If so, are you having symptoms of gluten intolerance and/or celiac disease. There is a histroy of celiac diesease in my family, but my blood work and biopsy have been inconclusive. I have several symptoms, including osteoporosis, psoarisis, maybe DH (not diagnosed), migraines, restless leg syndrome, intestinal issues, lactose intolerant, polycystic ovarian disease, endometriosis and other issues. I am on a gluten free diet with improvement. My 5 year old daughter I am concerned about, she is the one with the genetic test results listed above. I was told by the lab that because she hase two copies of the gene that predisposes her to gluten intolerance that there is an even stonger predisposition to gluten sensitivity than having one gene and that the resultant immunologic gluten sensitivity may be more more severe. When I heard this I still don't know what it means really. Should she or should she not go gluten free? If I wait for really severe symptoms does that mean damage is done that can not be reversed? Like osteoporosis? She is very tiny 40 inches and 29lbs, suspected to have juvenile migraines, asthma and allergies. She also has diarrhea more times then not. The doctors think I'm nuts to have her tested (stool or serum) every year, for IGLa or immunologic disorder even though the lab suggested this would be wise if I decide not to take her off the gluten. Is there anyone out there who has had the genetic testing done with these two genes and is having issues. thanks
