  1. Thank you everyone for your information. I don't think gene testing was done. I will pass on the info to my parents and have my kids tested for the genes as well. I'm still learning so much about this disease. It's been a real learning experience for me and my doctor.
  2. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with Celiac after being misdiagnosed for many years. I had gall bladder surgery with complications and was told that triggered the Celiac. My gastro doctor said it was the worst case of Celiac he had seen. All of my villi (sp?) were completely flat, not one left standing. Both of my parents have now had the blood test for Celiac and both were negative. Two of my children have tested negative. My brother and sister have yet to be tested. In my extended family (aunts, uncles, cousins), no one has had any symptoms, so no tests for any of them. If both of my parents have tested negative, where did the gene and disease come from? I would appreciate a response from anyone who could shed some light on this. And thank you in advance for your help.
  3. Angie, Thank you so much the info. I'm ready to try anything to help with this. It's driving me crazy having these infections so often and so close together.
  4. I am a new celiac, diagnosied in November 2006, after 5 hospitalizations in 3 months. I have had 4 yeast infections in the last 3 months. What's up? My gastro doctor said yeast infections are not common in celiacs. I'm beginning to think he may not be right. Any help on this subject would be appreciated. Thank you, Terrie
