My antibodies were negative (not suprising since I'm gluten free)

My genotyping was apparently positive

HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for coeliac disease

HLA-DR 3, 15

DRB1 03, 15

HLA-DQ 2, 6

HLA-DQA1 01, 05

HLA-DQB1 02, 06

CONCLUSSION

GENOTYPE SUSCEPTABLE FOR COELIAC DISEASE DETECTED.

Heterozygous for the DRB1*03-DQA1*05-DQB1*02 haplotype, which is consitent with the DQ2 phenotype.

Does anyone know what this means?

I'm going to see the allergy dietition in a few weeks, she said she won't subject me to a gluten challenge for biopsy etc (finally someone who's making some sense) she's seen the effect eating gluten has on someone who shouldn't eat it (she's part of the allergy clinic in one of the largest hospitals in the country). She's going to draw up a diet for me on the presumtion I have coeliac (since I'm already living that way anyhow) and the doc is prepared to put that diagnosis on my medical history. I just have dairy and amines tollerance testing and food diary to be sure I'm getting enough nutrition, only another 3-6 months to go. Ah finally getting somewhere :s.

hi,

you have the main celiac gene that most tested celiacs have. The short name is DQ2(also known as DQ2.5).

Heterozygous for the DRB1*03-DQA1*05-DQB1*02 haplotype, which is consitent with the DQ2 phenotype.

DRB1*03-DQA1*05-DQB1*02 haplotype- That is the gene.

The heterozygous means you have one copy of the gene, not two. You only need one copy.


gluten . . . Kiss my grits!

pork and beef free- 1994

wheat free or wheat light- 2003
