Test Results - Confused
0

2 posts in this topic

I got my bloodwork results back, and I'm a little confused.

I tested positive for DQ2 and negative for DQ8, but it says I test negative for ALL the antibodies (tTg, IgA, etc.)

Gluten deals me fits so I know it's my problem; do my results point more towards Celiac Disease or a higher intolerance to gluten? (Either way, I've almost completely cut it from my diet. I had to ease into it since cold turkey always guarantees a relapse for me.)

Welcome Anna!

Roughly 30% of population carries DQ2 and 5% of population carries DQ8.

Neither statistic means much if you fell better without gluten. As long as you have had the full panel of antibody tests - it is time to remove ALL gluten for three months (six is better) to monitor symptom improvement.

Hang in there -- seems like you are on the right track :)
