Please Help With Results ?

I got my Genetic Testing Done and my DR. says well I'm not a Genetestis so I couldn't understand the results so she went on line to try to interpret them herself. My HLA-DQ2 was positive and my HLA-DQ8 was negative the paper says LOCUS DQB1 Alleles 02,0603. Can someone please tell me what this means. The DR. Said she could not tell one way or another and said well there's nothing wrong with you. I contacted the place that did the testing they said the DR. would have to call and they suggested I call the hospital for more help which I did but they couldn't tell me much either. Since the Dr. pretty much brushed me off I'm not getting anywhere with her. So Please if anyone could help me understand this I would greatly appreciate it!!!

I'm a bit confused myself...

DQ2 is one of the main genes for celiac, although to know your risk you'd have to know the alpha portion of that gene. There's a big difference between DQ2.5 and DQ2.2. It is possible, with that gene alone, that you could have celiac disease. Have you done any other tests?

If "0603" is your other gene (DQ6), that's actually a good thing. According to Wikipedia, DQ6.3 gives you protection from a lot of autoimmune disorders and some protection against HIV.

Did the doctor give you the actual report? Or is that just the note he/she wrote down for you?

She gave me the report. I have had Blood test done which came back negative but I was already on the diet. I also have had both scopes done but GI DR. still won't give up the results of biopsy. I've been to so many Dr.'s they have asked for biopsy results from him he will not send them.. So I'm going to have to go in and demand them. I'm just so frustrated and tired of getting the run around and the typical there's nothing wrong with you and it's all in your head diagnosis. The testing was performed at H & I Laboratory in Salt Lake City UT.

Yeah, your GI needs to cough those up. Legally, he cannot keep them from you. Doctor to doctor is another thing, but you have a right to see your medical records. Go get 'em! :P

The doctor does not mean what DQ2 and DQ6 means?

Well, I have seen patients reporting that some gastros seem to think celiac is to be excluded unless both alleles are positive for the main two celiac genes....that is not true.

You just need one of them to have a greater risk for being celiac.

even without a celiac gene, there is still a risk of being celiac, since the DQ genes only can explain half the risk. The greatest risk is having a celiac relative.

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
