That is facinating! I have it on both hands and am gluten intolerant. I will have to check the rest of my family! Hmmmmm!

This is really interesting! I checked my hands and then I checked my bf's sons hands, as he doesn't have food allergies. Mine are shorter than the crease and his aren't.

Interesting... both of my pinkie fingers are short.

"Braly's Sign was first described in 1953 by an English Gastroenterologist, Dr James Braly. The majority of Celiac patients have a short 5th finger and this is Braly's Sign. (J Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition 2000; volume 31 (Suppl.3):S29. NEJM, August 18, 1999).
In short (pardon the pun), the tip of the 5th finger (pinkie finger) is shorter than the crease of the last joint of the 4th finger (ring finger)."

Looking at the backs of my hands with all my fingers together, both of my pinkies are shorter than my ring finger's last joint. Wow. Never heard of this.
I am not formally diagnosed. A naturalpathic doctor told me I am intolerant based on my symptoms and cravings level.

I can be a bit slow at times but when they say the last joint of the ring finger is the joint nearest the tip of the finger? If that's the case, then yes I have it.

Working on a healthier, happier me.

I had to look it up too. I have it. My blood tests came back negative. My daughter is celiac, had both blood test and biopsy. My brother has what the dermatologist believes is DH. His blood test was "inconclusive". My doctor says I should follow the gluten free diet to avoid damage. She diagnosed me as being gluten intolerant.

I haven't heard of this before, so I had to look up the description.

Yes, I have this on both hands. One more reason to think that, although I wasn't officially diagnosed, I probably have celiac. (I also have the vitamin deficiencies.)

Yes, I do have a short left pinkie. I have been diagnosed as only gluten sensitive/intolerant but extremely so; but I found it not a doctor. It was only after my journals were reviewed by a doctor the formal description set in.

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I don't have it. Both my pinkies extend above the crease of my ring fingers.

I haven't been diagnosed Celiac, but have 'gluten sensitivity'. Course the test was done after I had been off gluten for a number of weeks and then back on for 10 days. So, I'm not all together sure how accurate my testing was. All I know for sure is that when I am eating gluten it significantly worsens my MS; and when I stay off gluten my MS symptoms gradually (mostly) disappear.
