In Topic: Does This Sound Like Celiac?

Okay. I just received his blood results. They say:


HLA Class II, Locus DQB*, Allele 1 02:01
Results: Positive for HLA-DQA*05 and HLA-DQB*02 alleles

HLA Class II, Locus DQB*, Allele 2 05:01
Patient has the HLA-DQ2 antigen, but does not have the HLA-DQB antigen

HLA_DQB Genotyping Interpretation
If less than 2 alleles are reported for a locus , the patient is likely homozygous.

I have not yet spoken with his doctor. His appointment is on Tuesday. I know he does have the Celiac gene. I am wondering based on the results if he is homozygous for it (which would make me more sure of the diagnosis).

He had the test on Friday. It should take about two weeks to get back. We are also going to have his dad tested as he has always had bowel issues. If all tests are negative, we will give it a rest. If anything is positive, we will pursue a Celiac diagnosis! Thanks all for your great advice!

I just got off the phone with him. He wants to do HLA gene testing before we try the diet. I'm okay with this plan!

His GI just called and left a message saying everything is normal. He doesn't have Celiac. See you back in three months. :blink:

IgG is split up into 4 subclasses, ea with it own job... What is his IgG2?


His IgG2 is 91. It's not quite as bad as his IgG1.
