Ceilac Symptoms Without The Ceilac Gene? in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptoms Posted March 4, 2006 · Report to Admin Hello everybody! Last July, I had a positive blood test for Ceilac(Igg, Iga). After 10 years of struggle with my health, I finally got an answer. I went gluten-free and followed the "Specaific Carbohydrate Diet"( by Elaine Gottschale, everybody should read her, her experience saved me so much life, thanks to her, I've become belly pain free). I had "celiac attacks" for another 8 months. They are a mix of extreme exhaustion with brain fog, like if I have an unbearable weight on my chest. The gluten-free diet has changed a lot for me. But, I have not found a normal life yet. Stress is like the main factor of my attacks. Sometimes, I know that I have been contaminated. Though, I am not sure from where. I still get sick with flu or flu-like virus, very easily. The revolution, is that I have no more depressive thoughts. Depression is OUT of my life. I am a new spirit. Or, lets say that I found back my spirit. It feels GOOD. Thank you my GI, thank you God. Or vice versa? Who Knows? Last month, I did a genetic blood test. It came back NEGATIVE! And, my mother did hers, it came back POSITIVE! My questions are: -is there any of you who has been having a similar recovery? The stress factor still bugs me. -how do you explain the fact that I have the symptoms of ceilac without the gene and my mother has no symptoms with having the gene? -do you think that there might be another gene unrevealed yet? Thank you so much for your insight, lots of hugs and smiles for everybody, Nathela.
