Hi,

 

 

 

:)

Most people actually post a little info . But.... I will just answer the question in your title "Dermatitis herpetiformis without the Celiac gene?"  Not likely.  Probably isn't actually DH.

Were you diagnosed with DH?

Have you started a gluten free diet to see if your symptoms clear up?

Every blood test (including genetic testing) has a 30% human error rate.

Genetic testing  may have a 98% accuracy rate listed - You can be the 2% error rate.

Not all genes for Celiac/ DH/ gluten intolerance are not identified.

Genes mutate.  Genetic anomalies do and can occur.  i.e. More cases of chimerism are being identified.

You may have to use patient response/symptoms for diagnosing an issue with gluten.  Basically if it makes you sick, don't eat it.
