    Hi everyone,

    I am new to this website, but I have been gluten free (or so I think) for one year now. It all started when I read an article about anemia possibly being linked to gluten sensitivity. I have been anemic (always a tiny bit below lower limit of normal), for as long as I can remember, and so has my mom and sister. I also had a variety of small health problems (asthma, multi nodular thyroid, nausea, bloating+++…etc) and my doctor always told me that he did not understand how come I had all these little (!) problems.

    I decided on my own to get testing (unfortunately, the lab where I went only tested for HLA-DQ 2 and 8) and learned that I was DQ-2 positive. Since then I removed gluten from my life and feel a lot better. My asthma is greatly improved and for once I am just above the lower limit of normal for iron. I still have some issues though…probably linked to the fact that I still have dairy… but I kind of rely on dairy (mostly cheese) as snack.


    Anyway, I assume I should be testing my kids now…(psoriasis, bovine protein intolerance…etc).

    I am very happy to ahve found this website which provides support but also the latest science update on gluten sensitivity.


    Talk to you soon.

    Hello Emmanuelle and welcome!

    Glad to hear that your diligence paid off and you were able to discover gluten as a problem.  Thanks for sharing your story with us.

    Have a great day!
