genetic test back with DQ2 and DQ1 gene

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My thoughts, as a non-medical celiac person who has the genes, is talk to your doctor... And don't do anything right now based only on the genetic test. People can have the genetic markers and not develop the disease or symptoms until they are middle aged or more. The genetic test, as I understand it, tells us who might develop celiac not who definitely will.

Do you suspect that your child has celiac disease?   My understanding is that those without the celiac gene can not develop celiac disease.   Those with the celiac gene can develop celiac disease, but most still will not.

So, generally, the genetic test can rule out, but does not confirm celiac.   If you think you child has celiac, then you might want to talk to your doctor to schedule an endoscopy.

my childs genetic test back with dq2 and dq1...lab person told me one is with celiac gene and another one is gluten sensitive gene,so what do I do for now?any idea?

 

 

There is no such thing as a "gluten sensitive" gene. DQ2 is one of the celiac genes. As others stated, the gene test is more to rule out celiac but does NOT mean the person has celiac or will later present with celiac. About 1/3 of the population has the celiac gene(s) but they will not all develop celiac.

Having said that, it's not the norm but there are other genes associated with celiac - not common at all but it does happen.

thanks for the reply, Yes,I suspect my child either has gluten sensitive or celiac,but her blood test back negative, so I order stool test for her from enterolab, her test back giadin IGA and ttg Positive,so does it mean she has celiac or non celiac gluten sensitive?

 

 

 

 

With the results of the tests you have provided, the next step is a GI consult.  Verification of intestinal damage can only be obtained from biopsies via endoscopy per the majority of the world's leading celiac medical experts.   Once celiac disease is ruled out, then possibly a non-celiac gluten intolerance can be made.   Your daughter has had Lyme Disease (if I recall).  That adds a special set of complexities to the issue and one that is definitely beyond my knowledge (and most of our members).

Learn more about celiac disease from the University of Chicago.  It has one of the best and informative websites:

I doubt you will find a GI doc or any other doc who will put any credence in the Enterolab results. See:

thanks,I did consult GI doctor but since her blood test were negative,so the GI doctor don't care what her lab test are which I order myself...and regarding the endoscope,she has been gluten free for 1 month,so for sure the test will be back inclusive...

but she did improve a lot without gluten on her diet,so I'm very sure she has gluten sensitive but just don't know if its celiac or not for now.
