  1. Thanks elye. My son Ryan is a type one diabetic for almost 10 years and has been treated for almost 9 years for an underactive thyroid and takes synthroid. I understand like you said that Celiac is another auto immune disease, which puts him at a higher risk. Thanks for the support
  2. Thank You Ravenwoodglass for your reply and support. You are a wealth of information.
  3. My 14 year old son has been a diabetic since he was 5 years old. I received a call from his endocronologist stating that he had to have his blood screened for celiac disease because in his yearly blood work his total Iga was low. He tested negative for Igg. He then was tested for genes DQ8 and DQ2. I found out today that he tested positive for DQ8 and negative for DQ2. He now has an appointment to see a pediatric gastro doctor. My son has no symptoms what so ever for this disease, and if he wasn't a diabetic he never would have been tested. He has a normal appetite and no upset stomach or bowels. I understand that to rule this disease out he will have to undergo a biopsy of his intestines. Can anyone tell me what you think the chances are that my son has this disease and if the biopsy will be a difficult procedure for my son. This is all new to me and I'm trying to understand all this terminology. Thank You
