Hmmmm...I'm naturally a blond, but several years ago I dyed my hair red for a while. Could that have been my "celiac trigger"? :lol:

My daughter is also a natural blond and did the very same thing. Never thought of it as being her trigger. Hahaha

I had a red beard , before it went white. Some red hair, a real mutt.I have several redheads in my family. Family is from Italy, where there is a LOT of celiac disease. No more pasta for me! I have noticed in my career, Dentistry, where I viewed many medical histories, that redheads seem to have a lot of allergies and auto immune diseases. It is a recessive trait.

Dadblammit! I'm a redhead and that's no fair. Finally a Dentist though who understands this connection. Most health care professionals don't think about these things or so it seems. Good for you. Lots of men get red in their beards, don't know why that is.

I'm Polish, Irish, German, and Scottish - I'm a brunette but every time I try to dye my hair it always comes out red first!! I've been told by my hair stylist that I have natural red tints in my hair - guess its the Irish or Scottish!!

    • I'm in the Houston area so I'm assuming there are plenty of specialists around, though finding one that accepts my insurance might be hard. This might sound dumb, but do I search for a celiac specialist?? I'm so new to this and want to feel confident in what is/isn't wrong with my daughter. I'm with you on trusting the specialist to know the current research.
    • ok With your IGG result I'm sure a part of you is still wondering if they are right to exclude celiac. I know just how you feel as I too had a negative biopsy, but by then a gluten challenge had already established how severely it affected me. It may be that you're non celiac gluten sensitive, which is a label that for a different but related condition which has only recently been recognised and for which research is still very much underway. All of your symptoms: were also mine and they all resolved with the gluten free diet.  So don't despair, you may still have found your answer, it just may be a bit wordier than celiac!
    • Run to the nearest celiac disease specialty center if you can. Especially with conflicting doc opinions. Where do you live? Honestly, I test positive to only the DGP and the newest research on its specificity is a mixed bag. My recent scope did not show "active" celiac disease but only a slight increase in IELs.   I am waiting for my post biopsy appointment with the Celiac specialist next month. But I've been through a couple of GI'S locally and honestly I  feel it was definitely worth going to a specialist. Especially when you have some positive blood work but a normal biopsy the doctors really go back and Forth on diagnosis and never really know for certain.  Unfortunately given the above I just said I probably still do not know for certain. Sigh. But I trust the specialist to be at the top of his game on the research  and at least I can feel confident and comfortable in what his opinion may be next month.
    • That's a great list with such great info!  Do you eat at Shucks?
    • I just got a call from the Kaiser GI department. The doctor who performed the endoscopy was supposed to call me with the results and instead the receptionist did. She said "Dr. X says your biopsy was normal and you do not have celiac disease." Word for word, that's it! So not only did I not get to talk to her the day of my procedure, but not at all! They are printing copy of the biopsy pathology report for me and I'll get it tomorrow. I want to see if it says how many samples they took. At this point, I still feel like crap, still have symptoms and I'm going to try a gluten-free diet to see how I improve, get blood tests again eventually.
