  1. Hi There, thanks for the reply Yea it is kind of a mute point considering gluten covers wheat anyway... but I was curious and it was not something I really ever explored further. The testing was IgG, btw.
  2. Thanks. And yes I am 2 years Cancer free -- on December 16th, and doing pretty well Yea, it's a shame doctors aren't more clear on these things and do not have clear communication either! I have to say this forum has been a fantastic...

    Keratosis Pilaris?

    This is quite possible, if I am glutened (which happens) I get it bad. I noticed that within a day of no gluten, it clears up nearly completely. I've had this my entire life. Only since going gluten free, has it cleared up. Hmmm.....
  4. So I've been thinking... My story in a nutshell --- had a weak positive blood work for Celiac several years back, had biopsies which were negative. My doctor's seemed stumped and told me I "probably didn't have Celiac, but not sure...

    Keratosis Pilaris?

    Does anyone have Keratosis Pilaris as a skin condition related to Celiac and *NOT* DH? (I do)
  10. My blood work was positive for Celiac, after years of mis-diagnosis and nobody putting two and two together or giving me straight answers. Thank you Google (LOL). I went in for a Biopsy to confirm Celiac Disease. Came out of my endoscopy...
  11. Thank you again for your reply. I agree that people respond to Diabetes much more than Celiac. I suppose because they understand it better. The old myth that Celiac is "rare", is just that... a myth... And I appreciate your honesty about...
  12. Thank you Gemini and squirmingitch for your replies, I really appreciate it! Yes, I knew that duodenal/intestinal non Hodgkin Lymphoma was highly associated with untreated Celiac Disease (I did some research, but the 'do I have celiac do...
  13. So I was told again by my GI doctor that I do not have Celiac Disease because my biopsies were negative, and I do not need to be eating gluten free (I had been seeing my GI doctor previously who diagnosed me with non Hodgkin lymphoma of...
