In Topic: Test Result Interpretation Help Please!

09 November 2012 - 07:04 AM

Ok, so the GI nurse just called me and told me that he has DQ2 and DQ8. I don't know how she got DQ2 (can someone please help explain it?)
She said that since all his current bloodwork is negative for Celiac, they will not do anything now and instead will re-test him every few years.

Any advice? Help? Please!

Thank you so much for responding, Takala. This is all very confusing and I'm so eager for answers. From what I've read today, I thought that having the combination of A1*03 with B1*0302 gives him DQ8.

I am reading his results as:
A1*03
A1*01
B1*0302
B1*0305.

I don't know at all if this is correct, but I am trying. If I look at it this way, that one gene combo I mentioned above =DQ8. I don't know what to make of the other 2 (A1*01 and B1*0305).
I didn't see anything for DQ2, but again, I am new to this. I'm not sure what to look for! I do know that DQ2 and DQ8 are both higher risk genes for Celiac.
Thanks again-
