2 Genes for Gluten Sensitivity
I will try to keep this as short as possible. For the last year and a half, I have been dealing with multiple vitamin deficiencies, including Vitamin D, magnesium, iron and probably others.
My iron has not gone up despite taking iron pills for a year. That was when I knew I was in trouble. Both my boys have had symptoms that were alleviated by a gluten free diet so I knew that they were either gluten intolerant or had celiac. Both of their blood tests were negative but I didn't have them get the endoscopy. Back to me, I have never had any problems with my stomach or anything else for that matter so I never suspected it until my iron didn't go up.
I also knew that my kids got it from me or their father. So, I got the blood test and it was negative but my genetic test showed that I have 2 genes for gluten sensitivity but not celiac. This is my question. Can you have malabsorption from gluten sensitivity? I thought that your villi was only damaged if you had celiac. If that is not the case, what is the difference between celiac and gluten intolerance?
