Hi,

 

I've recently receive my genetic test to determine if i'm a celiac. I don't have any symptoms and the EMA IgA test was negative. I' ve 2 brothers and my mother who are celiacs.

 

I've read in this forum that 90% of the celiacs has the DQ2 and having de DQ7 is also a risk. But, if you don't have any symptoms and you have the genetics results that are below, did you have any chance of not being celiac?

 

I didn't try to translate these results, because I don't want to modify their meaning.

 

BIOLOGIA MOLECULAR   Material Examiando: Sangre entera     Método: PCR Primers Específicos       (SSP - PCR - Low Resolution)       Tecnologia Utilizada:Termociclador Apollo ATC 401       Valor Hallado:       Locus DQB1: 02     Locus DQB1: 03     Correspondencia por serologia: DQ2,DQ7
 

 

Thanks a lot.

Regards,

 

Gonzalo.

You can have the genetics without the symptoms or noticeable damage,  .  A trigger even often comes before symptoms are apparent. Some people chose to eat gluten free when they discover they have the genes and some wait for symptoms to appear first.  You can decide what is right for you.  Please do watch for any of the 300 symptoms if you chose to eat gluten.

Agreed.

 

You are a classic non-symptomatic Celiac.

 

Your stomach will degrade without you knowing it...you will get less and less nutrients from your food.  You are eating a poisonous protein called gluten...you cannot escape damage if you continue to consume it.  The protein acts like an acid, burning your villi off.  The food slides by, and you get next to nothing from it.

 

One bad thing happens...one bad day...overwhelming stress...an auto accident, and your body changes completely?  You become old overnight.  You lose your career, and then your spouse, and then nearly the house you worked so hard for?  Is that what you want?

 

And then you get to feel gradually worse until you wake up and say..."Why did I eat all that junk?  Why did I waste so many years?  Why did the doctors not find out sooner...

 

Oh, I forgot...this is you, not me.  I had symptoms and no diagnosis.  You have a diagnosis, and no symptoms.

 

You're fine.  Have some cake, and eat it too.

 

 

But remember that every microgram of gluten is burning your small intestines away, and eventually your currently un-symtomatic body will crash on you.  It is very unpleasant, and no, you cannot escape chemistry and biology.  You will not be lucky...you have already won the Celiac Gene lottery.

 

I am sorry that anyone has this genetic tendency, and I pity you sincerely...no symptoms, and the damage being done anyway.

 

1/24 of a teaspoon of wheat is enough each day to damage you...burn away your intestinal lining...one bite from a sandwich made with that wonderful wheat stuff that tastes really good, and is everywhere, and though you do not feel it yet is making little holes in your stomach. upper intestines.

 

It is very hard to be wise, and act in courage when nothing seems to be wrong.

 

Be courageous anyway.

A gene test is not going to tell you if you have Celiac and Having other family members with Celiac does not mean you will get it.  It's about your chances of developing Celiac.  I would not recommend "assuming" that you have Celiac Disease.  There is a testing protocol that will give you answers.  Celiac testing is more than one blood test.  It is an entire panel of tests in addition to a endoscopy procedure. If you carry a gene for Celiac then you have a 30% greater risk than the general population but in no way means that you will get it.  The two Medically accepted Celiac genes are DQ2 and DQ8 although there is much discussion about additional genes.

I am not sure what post you are responding to. This poster isn't diagnosed. Having a Celiac gene does not mean you have celiac. About 30% of the population has a Celiac gene, yet only about 1% of the population has Celiac.

Celiac does not " degrade" the stomach. celiac is a disease of the small intestine.

My apologies, KarenG.

 

I responded to what I saw in the post...I must have been very tired.  I have corrected the word stomach to upper intestines as per your correction. 

 

Thank you for your corrections.

The poster has no symptoms and negative tests.  One gene does not mean you have Celiac disease. 

 

The proteins we call gluten do  not "burn" your stomach or intestines.  They cause your body to produce antibodies that attack the small intestine.

 

I am going to recommend you read some reliable info about Celiac disease before posting again.  Unless you have some new research to share about this?  

 

This is a good place to start:

You can have a Celiac gene.  It does not mean you have Celiac at this time.
