  1. Hi All, I am having some trouble interpreting my Gene Test results. I had negative blood test results, a positive biopsy, and now I am trying to tie it all together with these results. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Gluten Sensitivity Gene Test HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0301 HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0502 Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 3,1 (Subtype 7,5) Interpretation Of HLA-DQ Testing: Although you do not possess the main HLA-DQB1 genes predisposing to celiac sprue (HLA-DQB1*0201 or HLA-DQB1*0302), HLA gene analysis reveals that you have two copies of a gene that predisposes to gluten sensitivity (any DQ1, DQ2 not by HLA-DQB1*0201, or DQ3 not by HLA-DQB1*0302). Having two copies of a gluten sensitive gene means that each of your parents and all of your children (if you have them) will possess at least one copy of the gene. Two copies also means there is an even stronger predisposition to gluten sensitivity than having one gene and the resultant immunologic gluten sensitivity may be more severe. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by the American Red Cross - Northeast Division. It has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
  2. Liquor and Oysters can carry one far...thanks again. Tim
  3. PricklyPear...your wealth of knowledge on this forum is trully wonderful and I thank you for your in depth responses. I look forward to digging through some of the information you have posted for me this evening. 2 days on this forum and I am happily amazed at how inclusive and helpful this community really is. I have to travel often for work and look forward to when I can become a resource for others. Thank you again
  4. I am in New Orleans for work next week and must admit that after some research I am a bit nervous about my Gluten Free options. Does anyone have any suggestions for gluten-free meals in New Orleans? Thanks
  5. I recently went through blood marker testing (which was negative) and then had an endoscopy in which my biopsies were labled Early Celiac Marsh 1. Neither of my doctors (Primary or GI) has been really open to discussion... I am trying to determine if I am trully Celiac? I now am going to live a Gluten Free life, but no one has mentioned to me anything about getting my children tested. Quite confused and would appreciate any help that can be offered.
