  1. Hi, Has anyone had gene testing (blood sample). I think its HLA DQ2 and DQ8...? Is that accurate...I assume so? Has any celiac has this done and shown postive...and has any celiac had it done and shown negative? Thanks Julie
  2. Hello to all, Thank you for this board! My name is Julie, and William is my 13 month old. He has been a challenge from day 1. After getting him diagnosed with reflux at 2 months...things were a little better with Prevacid. He was very crabby, colicky, and unhappy most of the time. I always suspected something else going on. Finally, after playing with his diet, I think he may be celiac. My pediatrician is NOW listening FINALLY! We just had the genetic blood test done on him....so I will let you know the results. Until then, I wanted to introduce ourselves and meet other parents that we have something in common with. Also, where do you buy most of your food...what do you make? Any good name brand items that are gluten free....good recipes...ok toothpastes and lotions? Good websites? Anything would be helpful! Are there gluten free fishsticks? or ckn nuggets? Nice to meet all of you, Thank you, Julie William's Mom ( i betcha my mom is right!) 6-26-03
