I think I was verging on celiac before going Paleo. It didn't give me the runs like it does most celiac people but it upset my stomach and made me pretty severely constipated. Every so often I eat a couple small crackers or a bite of cookie just... (more)

I've been researching celiac disease a ton over the past few days since getting my 23andme results back. It's a very confusing tangle of genes, but it looks like I'm heterozygous for the "celiac genes", both HLA-DQ2 (2.5, but not 2.2) and HLA-DQ8.... (more)
