Buccal Swab Results: Any Other Double Dq1S Out There? Thoughts?

29 July 2014 - 12:13 PM

Hi, all!


I finally bit the bullet and did the Enterolab buccal swab. Here are my results:


HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1      0501   

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2      0602   

Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ   1,1  (Subtype 5,6)


So, I have two copies of DQ 1. That supposedly can make immunologic responses stronger and can lead to gluten ataxia. Anyone have experience with this? I am pretty sure I have a response to gluten, and my bloodwork looked better off of it. Any other double DQ1s out there? What are your gluten responses? I have struggled with total fatigue, repeated UTIs and kidney problems, depression, huge weight gain, etc.


I would love some feedback/opinions. I am thinking this means enough for me to avoid gluten totally?
