I have found that my anti gliaden test of a three score lead me to get more answers from a naturopathic specialist. Maybe a different kind of doctor can put a different spin on facts details and tendencies. I found my issues of corn soy citric acid and sulfur/sulfites through a different kind of doctor. Some insurance covers some types of these orthomolecular specialists.

Gluten Sensitivity Intolerance Self Test
http://www.glutenfreesociety.org / gluten-free-society-blog / gluten-sensitivity-intol / - 56k - similar pages Feb 12, 2012 ... The proper tools must be used to accurately diagnose gluten sensitivity. This is where a lot of people and doctors get confused.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gluten_sensitivity says...In comparison, in a recent clinical paper, gluten sensitivity was defined as one or more of a variety of immunological, morphological or symptomatic manifestations that may also be shared by celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). In cases where there is reactivity to gluten, yet celiac disease and wheat allergy are eliminated as possibilities, gluten sensitivity may be considered. Whilst the general clinical picture for gluten sensitivity is similar to celiac disease in particular, it is usually less severe and neither anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies nor autoimmune comorbidities are found.
It is believed that approximately 40-50% of gluten sensitivity patients may have IgG or IgA anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA). There is also a study identifying approximately 50% of gluten sensitivity patients, few more than the general population, carry either HLA DQ 2 or 8. On closer inspection, it has also been found that such gluten-sensitive subjects lack histological lesions; fall below Marsh 2 celiac Disease score and indicating that there may be some infiltration of intra-epithelial lymphocytes. In addition, it has been found that they have normal intestinal permeability and an increased expression of Toll Like receptors 2 (TLR2) but no change in the cytokines involved in adaptive immune responses Th1 and Th17 such as IL-6, IL-17 A, IL 21, which are increased only in patients with celiac disease. The types of responses indicate an innate immune system involvement, but not autoimmune disease.


Some times the doctors have to find out what the patient does not have to guess at what is left. One guy with MS spent like $275,000 to find a final diagnosis.

yes this stuff is not well verified but here are some words to explore further
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gluten_sensitivity

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;

That is true, only for Celiac Disease. Generally it is recommended that reputable medical sources such as University of Maryland, etc are checked for information. Anyone can write anything in Wikihow and they are not verified. You also have to be careful of old information. Many things have changed over the years.

Not only get tested for both but also keep a food diary and symptoms that he has too. Then when she goes to the doctor it is documented too,

Histamine is an allergy symptom. Celiac and gluten sensitvity are not allergies.
I can't take time to look up information now but if you google the difference between allergy and gluten sensitivity, you should find your answer. The doctor should be testing for allergies and Celiac. Check www.celiac.org and our sticky topics.

A friend has what I think is a histamine allergy. Is that a possible symptom/part of the gluten intolerance/celiac disease or a separate issue?

My girlfriend's son's legs were hurting after a day of non-stop diarrhea. This along with impaction (according to doctor) has been going on for nine years and he is now 17 years old.

Are there more then one type of test for gluten intolerance, and if so which test should the boy have, re gluten and histamine?
