  1. Hi I am wondering if anyone was tested being negative for blood and or gene tests and later tested positive for Celiac. I was tested quite a few times but was already on a gluten free or very limited gluten diet. I also did the gene test which was negative and my previous GI Dr swore I could never have Celiac, but today my new nutritionist just told me that is absolutely false that is it still possible to have it. Because I have other autoimmune, HLA-B27, gastroparesis, IBS, acne (and cystic acne), eczema, and a bunch of other issues until he knows for sure he is treating me as if I have it. Help would be appreciated. Thanks
  2. I recently found out I have the DQ8 hetero gene. Because my life was being affected so drastically, I discontinues eating gluten and have started to feel myself. about 90% of my symptoms have resolved during the past 2 weeks of eating gluten-free. Now, I need to decide whether I should continue with a gluten challenge and test for antibodies and do the endoscopy/biopsy. I am one that would be unsettled not knowing whether or not I have Celiac. Does anyone have advice on whether or not I should do a gluten challenge and do further testing to pursue a diagnosis?
  3. This site is amazing and so helpful. I'm always on it but this is my first post. In short, I have been completely gluten free (except for accidental gluttenings) for more than a year. I had a laundry list of symptom for more than ten years and all testing (no Celiac, gluten-intolerance testing was done) showed nothing. I was told for years that I had IBS and to take meds and that's all that could be done. This wasn't enough for me so I tried a gluten free diet on my own. I didn't know then that I shouldve had an antibody test first. ALL of my symptoms are gone and I no longer have a need for all the rx meds! If I am accidentally gluttened, I'm severely sick. I can't move for about a week and my body hurts all over. The brain fog is so bad that when I "snap out of it", I literally feel like the past few days are a complete blur. So, while I will never add gluten back to my diet, I still would like to know if I am celiac or non-celiac gluten intolerant. Also, my mom's side of the family has many signs of celiac throughout history. Colitis, colon cancer, diabetes, multiple miscarriages for one relative, etc...So, I requested my primary order a gene test. As most doctors I've worked with, she didnt know much about it or celiac. I did the research and told her what genes to request. Results came back negative for DQ8 and Half Positive for DQ2. That's the short of it. Of course, there are a lot of numbers and what may be chains (?) listed. I don't understand all of that. I dont understand tTA or rtg, etc..or other testing numbers I read about on these forums that others have results for or if I was even tested for any of that. My question is can I be celiac with half the DQ2 gene? If so, how can I go about getting a "diagnosis"? Is an actual diagnosis even important and why? Third, IF I am celiac and I maintain a strict gluten-free diet, are there other concerns with having celiac? Am I still at a risk for malnutrition or other diseases/ailments? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated as well! Thanks!
