Parkinsons, Ms Dq6 ( Dqb1*0602 )

Recommended Posts

I was found to have these genes, listed below, based on the gene testing from Enterolab. After doing some research on the DQ6 gene, I see that it has been linked to MS, Parkinson's, and Narcolepsy. I don't have these conditions. However, my paternal grandmother died of Parkinson's and one of her daughters (my aunt) had MS. On my mom's side, one of my cousins has Narcolepsy.

Any one else, have this DQ 6 gene and have MS, Parkinson's, or Narcolepsy in the family?

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0202

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0602

Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,1 (Subtype 2,6)

I have a double set of DQ6, but have none of those diseases and have no family history. I think remaining gluten free will negate that (at least I hope so).

Don't know about the genes as I was diagnosed by endoscopic exam. I do know that prior to thinking of celiac I was treated for early onset Parkinson's and am glad I dont have to take those drugs anymore! There is no history of any of this in my family.
