Gene Result Question
Posted 15 November 2004 - 09:58 AM
Gluten sensitivity stool test - 13 units (shows sensitivity)
All other tests for normal
Molecular analysis - HLA-DQB1 *0201, 0602
Serologic analysuis: HLA-DQ 2, 1 (subtype 2,6)
It looks like he needs to be on the diet. Any comments? Thanks

The genes pan out as follows:
DQB1 *0201 = DQ2, subtype 2
DQB1 *0602 = DQ1, subtype 6 (OR it can also be referred to as DQ6)
He has 2 genes, one from you and one from your husband. BOTH of these genes predispose someone to a gluten sensitivity. DQ2 is associated with celiac disease and gastro problems, while DQ1 is associated with gluten induced neurological problems. I would definitely take a look at you and your husband and any other children.
There are some pretty good explanations on these genes and their typing on the Braintalk forum. Here is one post that gives some links to help understand your gene naming:

Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.

I just wanted to understand more. I know that there is high % of people that are celiac that have the DQ2 gene but I really need to find the statistic that show what % of people that have the gene actually become celiac. Need more "proof" for my husband.
