  1. The tests results indicate a gluten intolerance in the least. The fact that his brother was diagnosed with celiac is important, as this son could have the genes and could develop...
  2. I'm with Richard on your probability of having celiac. Now, apparently you need to be biopsy-proven to participate in some celiac studies... and I'm not sure if the tax-relef would...
  3. I spoke with the nurse yesterday. She is so cool and told me that if I EVER have any questions, that I can always call her.. she was awesome. Anyway, I asked her what test came...
  4. Just wanted to clarify and say that although this can occur it is always the case. Genetics play quite the role in celiac and you can be gluten intolerant and never develop it...
  5. Thank you so much, Stacie for your support. My test is on Nov 2nd @ 9am. I pleaded with the scheduler for grace because of my timing issue and she got me in. The thought that...
  6. I just received a call from my doctor today that the test for intestinal inflamation came back "suggestive" of crohn's. We have totally ruled out celiac disease with every test...
  7. HLA is a gene typing test where they check for the genes DQ2 & DQ8 (researched to be the celiac gene). If you're intolerant and you carry this gene, there is a risk that you...

  10. I received a call from my doctor today (less than a week from the test date!!). Anyway, it's good news! He performed the HLA (gene typing) and I'm negative for both DQ2 &...
  11. I also found their website, if anyone would like some more information: http://www.orgran.com/home.php
  12. Hello, I have relocated your original post to the Pre-Diagnostic Testing, Symptoms... area. For responses, please post under the following thread: http://www.glutenfreeforum...
  13. This is a really good article on the ELISA testing: http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodid=1042 I e-mailed it to my new GI doctor and he's looking into it. He's a really...
  14. I asked my GI specialist this just last week and he told me that they could run a few tests, but probably not to the extent that would prove helpful. He did tell me, however that...
  15. Billy, In my opinion, I think it's great that you're going back to a doctor... I'm on my 4th and hopefully final on the celiac issue. (It's difficult to find one that really...
