What Does This Mean?

Recommended Posts

Had the Celiac Blood Test. My DNA results were:

 

DQ2: DQA1*05:01/05:05- Positive, two copies and DBB1*02:01/02:02- Positive, two copies.

 

What does this mean? It does say that I am at elevated risk (1:10). I have to wait several weeks before I can see the Celiac specialist but I would like to know if I should go on a gluten-free diet because of this elevated risk. Does my result mean that I am DQ2.5 Homozygous?

What are the results of the Celiac antibody blood tests?  Just having the genes only means that you could have it.  About 30% of people have a gene or two for Celiac.  But only about 1% actually have Celiac.
