The genetic testing is in, and I do not have the marker at HLA-DQ2.5 that is most often associated with celiac disease.
However, I do have things at other places that place me at slight risk for non-specific inflammatory problems that can be associated with celiac disease. Here's what the report says:
This SNP is located near two genes – IL2 and IL21. Each gene encodes a protein involved in regulating immune cells. Studies have implicated both of these proteins in intestinal inflammatory diseases other than celiac disease.
This SNP is not located in any known gene, but the region contains a number of genes that are related to the immune response. These genes, including the closest gene CCR3, encode chemokine receptors, a class of proteins that bind to molecules known as chemokines. Chemokines play important roles in regulating the movement of white blood cells and, along with their receptors, have been implicated in several diseases.
Multiple studies have identified this SNP to be associated with celiac disease in populations with European ancestry.
So, as with everything else, nothing is crystal clear. The test on HLA-DQA only looked at 2.5, so I could still have some kind of atypical celiac. I either stop here or I spring for the more expensive genetic testing, but I'm not sure what that might accomplish, since I'm already gluten free. I just wish I had a definitive answer.
