Bloating, abd pain, diarrhea. Dad and grandfather have celiac. Had a painful, blistery rash on face and arm. What are genetic odds I also have celiac?

Bloating, abd pain, diarrhea. Dad and grandfather have celiac. Had a painful, blistery rash on face and arm. What are genetic odds I also have celiac?

Get tested!: Celiac is heritable and you have a greater chance with family members affected! The initial screening is a simple blood test. Celiac should not be a cause of your rash however. That probably has another etiology. The risk in the population is one in 100. Your risk with a first degree relative is one in 22.

4 mo boy exclusive breastfeeding. Has rashes on face every time when mom eats prawns or shell seafood. Allergy? Coincidence?

4 mo boy exclusive breastfeeding. Has rashes on face every time when mom eats prawns or shell seafood. Allergy? Coincidence?

No: Since breast milk does deliver some food allergens consumed by the mother, it is not a coincidence if this happens every time you ate shellfish. I would suggest that you avoid shellfish or discontinue breastfeeding. At age 4 months, it is also time to introduce table foods (no shellfish) to the child's diet since this may actually reduce the risk of developing yet more food allergies. ...Read more
