  1. Risk factors

    Hi thanks for replying! I am taking all the advice I can thanks! 🙏🏼 kareng those were tests my mom had done last year but her doctor never said she had Celiac until I asked one of the ladies at the Celiac foundation about how my mom tested positive for having “gluten intolerance “ .she informed me that there was no test for gluten intolerance only for Celiac and that’s when I had a talk with my mom i think I will skip the gluten challenge at this point . I’m glad to hear they are coming out with better testing methods.
  2. I’ve been gluten free for two years after I noticed eating gluten made me bloat up. I lived passing gas and thought that was “normal”. Fatigue anxiety dizziness, sinus pains and tingling was a normal part of my life.was diagnosed with lupus at 25 only to find out now I never had it at 42! My mom was told positive on blood work for gluten intolerance only to find out it’s celiac . Did genetic testing had positive DQ2.2 and something else my problem is doing the gluten challenge and having bad symptoms come back. I want to know if anyone can tell me if I sound risky for Celiac? i have bad diarrhea now, I’m scared because it’s never been this bad ...i think maybe it’s something else. I have been consuming gluten but stopped and now my stomach is a mess. Help!
  3. Thanks! Yes i will consider blood testing because with two positive genetic tests and family history, I would feel better knowing!
  4. Hi all! I have fatigue bloating and gas with stomach pain and sometimes diarrhea for a couple of years until I figured it might be gluten related. No matter how much I sleep I am exhausted. I have “chicken “ skin for years and feel foggy minded. I recently tested positive for the two or more Celiac genes hla dqa1 05 and DQ2.2. Also higher risk for autoimmune disorders. My mom also has gluten intolerance. Been as gluten free as possible with some relief but fatigue and sinus headaches all the time and some bloating remains. I know with celiac testing you need t eat gluten before you get tested. I’m just worried that that might trigger for me to get more sick. Does anyone else feel this way in regards to testing?
