prometheus gene question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am completely 100% clueless when it comes to the genetic stuff. I get the basicS. DQ8 And DQ2

 I was emptying out a drawer tonight and came across my Prometheus results which listed my gene as being DQ2 heterozygous. It was listed as a category 4 high risk. 

 Below category 4 DQ2 is listed again as a lower risk gene. I don't understand the difference. All I ever read about is DQ2 And DQ8.  Are there subtypes that put you at lower or higher risk? Let  me rephrase, obviously there must be. But can somebody simplify it for me?
