  1. thanks for everyone's help and clarification!
  2. Thanks for the quick response! So let me see if I understand: Because I have half the pair of two potential celiac genes (and the 505 that also indicates RA), this makes me gluten sensitive? Is this correct? It is encouraging to hear about the research link to gluten and autoimmune. It makes sense to me, but my RA doctor is having issues "embracing" the idea. That's why I experiment to provide proof via my labs. He gave me 2 months more to get back off gluten/dairy and retest again, before he puts me on plaquanil. I caught it early with early testing (my sisters and mom have RA, too), so I'm doing my best to stay off the RA meds! You wouldn't happen to have links to any of this research, or could point me to journals that might have this recent research? Thanks again! Veronica
  3. I, too, need help interpreting results. Most of the literature I've found online is too technical for me to understand. I understand that it is possible to be negative, but still gluten sensitive if one or part of the genes are present. I don't know if this is my case. I tested positive for RA and it seems to better lab-wise when I'm off gluten (I've experimented DQ2 (DQA1 0501/0505, DQB1 02XX) Negative DQ8 (DQA1 03XX, DQB1 0302) Negative Do both A1 and B1 have to be present to be gluten-sensitive? Thanks, Veronica
