  1. I have recently learned that there is overlap between the genes that cause celiac and mold susceptibility. It's possible that you do have celiac but are also suffering from biotoxin overload due to exposure to mold. Some people carry genes that prevent them from filtering and flushing biotoxins from their bodies. Mold spores emit mycotoxins that build up in the bodies of those who are genetically susceptible. Biotoxin illness causes chronic inflammation, including joint pain. Look at BiotoxinHelp.com for more info, as well as this link from SurvivingMold.com: http://www.survivingmold.com/diagnosis/the-biotoxin-pathway. Biotoxin illness sets off a domino effect of symptoms, including lowering vitamin D levels, but there's much more involved. The links will explain.
  2. I am curious whether any connection is thought to exist between gestational diabetes in a mom carrying a baby prone to celiac disease. I do not have celiac disease, but I did have gestational diabetes with my second child (no problems with my first pregnancy). The second child was diagnosed with celiac disease at 10 years of age. This came as a surprise as we did not know of any history of celiac or food intolerances in our family. Since our child's diagnosis, we have learned that my husband carries both the DQ2.2 and the DQ2.5 alleles, though he does not have celiac. Anyone know about whether there's a connection between a mom with gestational diabetes (but not celiac) carrying a baby prone to celiac? In other words, could the baby's gluten intolerance cause the mom to experience gestational diabetes? Just curious. Thanks!
