Genetic Test- Results
0

10 posts in this topic

I got my son's resutls from the genetic test which is:

HLA-DQ2 (DQA*05/DQB1*02) Positive

HLA-DQ8 (DQA*03/DQB1*0302) Negative

HLA-DQA1* 05

HLA-DQA1* -

HLA-DQB1* 0201

HLA-DQB1* 0301

Note: The patient has one of the HLA-DQ variants associated with celiac disease. More than 97% of celiac patients carry either HLA-DQ2 (DQA1*05/DQB1*02) or HLA-DQ8 (DQA1*03/DQB1*0302) or both. However, 39% of the general U. S. population carry these HLA-DQ variants, as a consequence, the presence of HLA-DQ2 or DQ8 or both variants is not per se diagnostic of celiac disease.

:huh::huh: Is 0201 same as 02 on top?

My genetic test is:

HLA- DQ2 (DQA*05/DQB1*02) negative

HLA- DQ8 (DQA*03/DQB1*0302 negative

HLA- DQA1* 01

HLA- DQA1* 05

HLA- DQB1* 0301

HLA- DQB1* 0502

In the both results I can see HLA-DQA1*05. I have just a half a gene DQ2 and my son have the whole gene DQ2.

I would like to ask you, if anybody knows which side of our family members gave us that gene(I mean father, or mother side)? Can you even tell?

alrighty, hopefully a moderator or more knowledgeable member than me will chime in because i THINK i get it- BUT these gene numbers/language is very hard to translate.

i THINK your son has 1 DQ gene: DQ 2.5 (which ive read is THEE most classic celiac gene)

and then i THINK you have 2 DQ genes: DQ1 and DQ5 (they're not "classic" but new studies, including out of europe say all the DQ genes have Celiac possibilities.

so, that is my GUESS at translating this. and im thinking your son's father has a DQ2 gene.

?? hope i got it right ??

It's mean that he needs to be tested? He does have the hypothyroidism and high blood pressure (in his case it is genetic, his father and mother both have it. He - from 24 years of age).

"he" as in your husband? having at least 1 DQ 2 gene doesnt mean he has it, but he does have the potential. many celiacs dont have any symptoms. if your husband is regularly ingesting gluten-> then it couldnt hurt at all to get a blood test!

oh, actually- if your son has it- then all 1st degree relatives should absolutely get tested.

When I told my husband that he should get tested too, he was so shocked. He is against the all tests. I gave him to try some of my gluten free and milk free substitutes. It was priceless to see his reaction. Some of them are very, very, very bad. He don't want to even think about going on gluten free diet. This is funny.

I was checking Hla-DQ1 in Wikipedia and there are always talking about alleles DQA1*0101, DQA1*0102 - 0103 -0104.

I have only DQA1*01 and the other half DQB1*0502 which can be the part of DQ1. I need to have DQA1*0102:DQB1*0502 to have HLA-DQ1. Is this true?

Is HLA-DQ1 gene to be considered for celiac disease? Why The Quest laboratory didn't included all known variants for celiac disease?

I also think he got the DQ2 from Dad and yes he should be tested. As should, if you are diagnosed, your brothers and sisters and Mom and Dad. If you have any other children they should be tested also.

There is a lot of really tasty gluten free food out there. Have him try some Snyder's pretzels, Pamelas Double chocolate chunk cookies, A pizza made with Gluten Free Pantries French Bread Mix to name just a couple. Don't even tell him the stuff is gluten free just put it in front of him. When I first went gluten free, for example, the only bread I could find was Ener-g, it has the consistance of styrofoam,IMHO and I didn't even know to microwave or toast it. Yes that stuff was disgusting. Again in my opinion for you Ener-g bread lovers. Now they have bread like Grainless Baker, UDI, Kinnickkinnick and more and better baked goods every day.

Make your dinners gluten free, you DH doesn't even have to know. So many regular dinner items can be made gluten-free or are naturally so that you should be able to do it without him noticing. Then after a couple weeks ask him how he likes your cooking lately. When it gets the rave reviews then let him know they were all gluten free. After some steak and potatos, chicken are rice, fish and homemade fries, stuffed peppers, parmesan oven baked chicken etc. he might change his mind on how horrible the diet is.

As to whether or not the DQ1... is a celiac associated gene, well it is in my case. My gene is DQB1 0303 or also called DQ9. Companies in the US generally only test for the two most recognized celiac genes. There are actually many more. It used to be considered to be 9 that were associated with celiac new research is looking at as many as 27. Gene testing does not diagnose celiac or tell you that you have it. It is simply part of the puzzle but not the end piece.

yes- everything that ravenwood said :D

im sorry, but all of those allelle numbers and complete gene numbers really confuse me.

i wish they would always just translate it simply for me.

my understanding is that DQ2 & DQ8 account for nearly 95% of Celiac cases. AND i believe that there's about 27 DQ genes that all have potential and possibility for Celiac. companies in america just dont test for all of them yet.

everyone in your family should be tested. (like i HOPE for everyone in my family to be tested.)

undiagnosed celiac can POTENTIALLY lead to a lot of unneccesary illness & even premature death-> our families should get tested so they can be around for a long time :)

Son must be DQ7,5 and DQ2,5, and you are DQ7,5 but they did not tell you that.

They did not report the other 05* alpha chain, they just reported positive for 05 and often labs report it this way.

We know he must be double 05* in the alpha alleles since you have the DQ7,5.

See the other answer on this forum here, the other lab did report the DQ7,5 as half a DQ2 gene. (the 05* alpha chain is half a DQ2,5 gene and it contributes more to celiac than just the 02 part)

Of course father has a DQ2,5, at least one.

My daughter has exactly the same results as your son. Did you figure out what the last for lines of the testing represents? She is negative on all the screenings but low Immunologlbun A and high gladian antibodies IGG

I've been reading up on HLA-DQ8 and DQ2, there appears to be one disease that could mask itself as celiac. That's schmidt's disease. Very similar symptoms between the two. I've had two celiac panels and my igg and iga were showing autoimmune disease. Schmidt's is also an autoimmune http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schmidt_syndrome  Heres the long list including celiac disease http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autoimmune_disease

 

I am interested in getting re tested, being gluten free has helped but I'm still really suffering daily, as if I can't keep up. Been on a gluten free diet for 6-7 years. Diagnosed after I have lymphona cancer. My blood pressure is and always has been abnormally low but my heart is strong and healthy. I do have hypoglycemia, dizziness and numbness on a regular basis even when I do not have cross contamination from gluten. The first sign of cross contamination is the bubbles building in my mouth by my tonsils, then the whole digestive reaction happens. I could vry well have celiac disease and I do not want to risk a "test" to see if I'm wrong (eating gluten), but I do have very weak hormone production/balance and low energy which I counter act with sugar. I've given up the coffee.

 

So I want to get re tested and talk about this. Not sure where to begin though?

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
