Genetic Test Is Negative But

25 August 2015 - 10:06 AM

would like some help understanding the rest. DQ2 is negative, no other info given.

DQ8 negative then with DQ8 it lists DQA1*01 DB:01 and DQB1*05 AEMX:06

Does this mean DQ1 and DQ5?


Thanks for any help deciphering!


Need Help With Genetic Testing

01 June 2015 - 03:05 PM

Hello everyone!  Fell off the wagon and have been eating gluten for months now. I've decided to have a biopsy when I have my endoscopy(for barret's esophagus) so I know i need to keep eating gluten


anyway, my dh bought me the 23 and me dna kit and I got the results back. I am negative for  HLA DQA1 however, I am heterozygous for DQ 2.5. Would that be DQB2? is this a gene with a high chance for celiac? I also have the CTLA4 gene which says it's Hashimoto's(which I Have) but it says it's also linked with Celiac. Does having both of these genes significantly increase my chances?


I am wondering because my iron level has dropped from 70 to 26 in just 6 months.


Thank you for any help.

Allergic To Pumpkin Oil?

23 February 2015 - 11:08 AM

I just started taking pumpkin oil again to help with my bladder.  I took the oil (from capsules) a few months ago and didn't have a problem.  I now have a rash on my forearms(the underside) same area on both arms . It looked like red lines all in a row on my arms. It didn't itch, but just stung a little.  My arms didn't come into contact with anything and I don't recall how long it was after I consumed the oil that the rash developed.  The rash is still there  but doesn't look as bad as it did the first day. I"m just wondering if this could be a reaction to the oil? I tried looking online, but only find info for allergy to pumpkin seeds. Thanks!!!!!!!!
