Hla-Dq2 & Hla-Dq8 Blood Tests Positive For Celiac Is This Definative?

Recommended Posts

You have celiac. You have the diagnoses of two very good doctors. You don't need any more proof. If you can learn to accept that, everyone else can learn to too. Now you need to read and re-read the Newbie 101 thread and get good at the diet so no more accidents happen.

And pretty soon you will start feeling much better. :)

gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

I agree with Bartful. Don't even bother to explain all the dx's & mis dx's to people -- just tell them you have been dx'd celiac by 2 separate doctors & that's the end of that. 

Now on to a new life for you & it will be much improved. It does take time to heal so be patient.

Gluten free Dec. 2011

Yes, I agree, go gluten free. Especially because the rash went away

gluten-free since may 06 after neg. biopsy symptoms went away and DH symptoms which I had since 03 got gradually better.

daughter officially diagnosed celiac and casein intolerant.

non-DQ2 or DQ8. Maybe DQ1? Updated: Yes, double DQ5

Hypothyroid since 2000, thyroxine first started to work well 06 on a low-carb and gluten-free diet

Lost 20 kg after going gluten-free and weighing 53 kg now. neg. biopsy for DH. Found out afterwards from this forum that it should have been taken during an outbreak but it was taken two weeks after. vitaminD was 57 nmol/l in may08)
