Kimball Genetics Testing
Posted 28 August 2005 - 08:03 PM
We tested me, my husband and this one child. My husband and daughter tested negative for DQ2 (DQA1*05/DQB1*02) and DQ8 (DQB1*0302). They detected one of the DQA1*05 alleles in me but that alone was not enough to result in celiac disease. So...according to Kimball Genetics, neither me nor my husband has the celiac disease associated molecules necessary to result in celiac disease and therefore our children do not posess the necessary genes for celiac disease. My doctor doesn't want to put full faith in these tests and so celiac disease remains the diagnosis for my biopsy positive child.
Can anybody tell me if the Enterolab testing is more specific for possible gluten intolerance genes? (There seem to be more gene types with Enterolab).Has anybody else had a positive biopsy without a celiac gene?
I know people will say to just follow the gluten-free diet and if it works let that be enough. But I keep thinking that there may be some other factors making my children sick.
Can anything else elevate an IgG level other than gluten?
