Hla-Dq2 & Hla-Dq8 Blood Tests Positive For Celiac Is This Definative? in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptoms Posted September 21, 2015 · Report to Admin I think I will assume she is correct but also get the biopsy done. I am looking at the handout she gave me (she has this site listed on the handout as the place to go to for answers) and there are all these questionable ingredients that she has listed. It says to check with the manufacturer before eating (assume there is gluten until verify otherwise): brown rice syrup, caramel color, dextrin, cereal products, malt or malt flavoring, malt vinegar, modified food starch, and soy sauce. OMG is there no end to the places they will stick gluten? Okay, so I am going to move on to stage two of living with Celiac Disease - researching hidden gluten. Sigh... Thank you all for the advice and support, the links and the wisdom. I am going to try not to lose sight of the fact that I feel way better than when I started this process last winter. I even look better being rash free. I feel less anxious today than I did initially. Information helps. You have all helped. Thank you. Just a note about the antifungals. I did diflucan and nystatin for many months at one stage. They arent very effective on candida and diflucan is a harsh drug, imho youll achive more on your diet but itll take a long time. Fungi can lay dormant for... Years no problem, its no instant thing. Try the antifungals but keep a watch on side effects and blood tests if you are doing them long term. Best way to change the fungal load is change the enviroment they live in. More acid and less sugar is good. Acid as in when your pee and poo is a little acidic all the time, itll go dormant but will take a very long time to go away. The diet shes suggesting will do that, just go with what she suggests. She sounds a good dr, not sure why you would do a biopsy when its captain obvious. Dq2 AND dq8 both together is very prone to all kinds of problems. Modified starch is a problem wheat based or not, 1422 gives my son hives and has given my father siesures that he takes weeks to recover from and neither of them have problems with anything else. I stopped eating gluten years before I had any testing done simply because my mind would go weird within 5 minutes of eating bread and id have wild diarrhea 20 minutes later for.. 5 years i lived like that. Fixed the day i stopped eating gluten, the bleeding sores on my back ive had for 20 years have finally almost stopped now, 7 years post gluten.
