    HLA-DQ8           Neg

    HLA-DQA1     01 and 05

    HLA-DQB1     0301 and 0602


    TSH 1.72

    t4 Free 1.3

    T4 Total 6.8

    Thyroid Antibodies less than 10

    T3 Uptake High at 36

    Do you have the normal reference ranges that your lab uses? It's difficult to interpret results without it as lab ranges can vary quite a bit.


    Without that though, I would say your one celiac test (tTG IgA) looks negative. It should be pretty accurate as long as you have normal IgA levels. I don't know much about genetic testing but it looks like you don't have the genes typically associated with celiac disease (but one can have celiac disease without those genes - just not as often).
