    I´m a family doctor from Spain(Barcelona) and I want to know your oppinion about this:

    I´ve a patient of 52 years old with a lack of antitrobine III and in treatment with oral anticoagulants because he did a venous trombosis.I asked for HLA DQ and he is positive for DQ8 and negative for DQ2.

    Do you think there could be a relation between gluten sensitivity and his coagulation problem and do you know any study about this.

    Do you think it would be a good idea to stop all his intake of cereals and above all can this change in diet eventually lower his necessity to continue with the anticoagulants or even stop them .

    thank you for your attention.

    Hi Doc,

    Sorry for the delayed reply.  I would definitely take this patient on a grain free diet.  I have seen this phenomenon many times in patients improve after eliminating grains.  These two studies might be helpful for you:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22272909

    Let me know how your patient responds.

    All the best,

    Dr. O
