Gluten Sensitivity Gene Test
HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201
HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0503
Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,1 (Subtype 2,5)
It explains that she got an allele from each parent and that gluten sensitivity or celiac disease may be more severe. Can someone interpret this a little more clearer for me? She has no symptoms except for migraines since 6th grade. My husband has NO symptoms of gluten intolerance whereas I have been very ill the last 2 years and now know that gluten was causing the havoc in my body. I barely got out of bed for a year but I am now in the healing process. So if my daughter continues to ingest gluten, can celiac disease devolop? Thanks for input!
Also should I gradually get her off of gluten, she is a teenager and this will be a real, real disappointment to her. It actually will be very difficult for her.
