Just got genetic testing fm Mayo. Allergy blood tests done yrs ago showed I was allergic to glutens, so I went gluten-free then. After that, osteporosis doc was looking for why I got osteoporosis at an early age, he found antibodies. GI doc did endoscopy, which was okay, he said maybe b/c I had been gluten-free so long (although he had me start on gluten about 6 weeks prior to the test). My niece was just diagnosed 6 months ago. New GI dr. ran following... DQ Alpha 1 01:02, 05:01 DQ Alpha 2 02:01, 06:02 Celiac gene pairs present? Yes. I'm thinking these are postive results, right?
Do you mean the test the gynecologist ran?
I am getting confused. Maybe start over? Why would the GI put you on a gluten challenge if you were diagnosed years ago? Did he run any blood work after you were eating gluten? If you had been gluten free for years - the Celiac blood work shouldn't have been positive (the one the OB?GYN ran?).
You may want to get a copy of all your medical records to see if you were actually tested for Celiac or not. It sounds like you probably have it but a genetic test only tells you that you are 1 of the 30% of people with a gene that could be activated at some time (but for most, will not be activated as only about 1% of the population have Celiac Disease).
