  1. Thank you, Ive done a lot of reading to understand what these results mean..Its been a long road to get to this point..Ive had no official diagnosis so Its been hard to stay on the diet..My GI doc. said he thought it might be gluten sensitivity after all my test came back negative and said I had IBS and stress. After trying different IBS meds and still not feeling well I decided to get the genetics test done.Ive been dealing with a lot of symptoms now for about 9 yrs..UGH.. I have 2 sons who are adults now but also have a lot of GI issues along with Dairy allergys. Its just so mind boggleing!..
  2. Hello fairly new to the sight, and still working on diagnosis.I did a genetics testing results were: DQA1 0501 (HLA-DQ2) Positive DQB1 0609 (HLA-DQ1) Positive DBQ1 0201 (HLA-DQ2) Positive Can someone help me with interpreting these results? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you..
  3. This is my first post but have been reading for the last couple of weeks. I've been dealing with alot of issues for yrs. Started in 2005 with my first colonoscopy, second one last sept.(2011) first one showed gastritis, 2nd one GI said suspected Gluten sensitivity, gastritis, and duodenitis..went back a month later PA said no to Celiac that it is IBS..I've continued to have more and more trouble D, Headaches, fatigue, allergys, Gerd,and most recently the last six months blood sugar, hight blood pressure and bad joint pain in both knees and elbows, stiffness and swelling in hand when I wake. I had went to an allergist approx. 2 yrs ago. He did a pin test, said I was allergic to dairy and malt..so I started using soy milk.. long story short, I went to a Nutritionist a month ago, she looked at all my tests and immediately put me on a gluten/dairy/soy free diet..I have to say I haven't felt so good in years, until last night..UGH...don't know what I did wrong except had coffeemate in my coffee..I was in so much pain it was awful...can a little bit of dairy cause so much pain??? I go back to see the Nutritionist on Friday we will see what she has to say.. I was feeling so good, I cleaned all of the gluten/dairy/soy out of my cabinets yesterday to only get so sick last night..I sure hope I'm on the right track... Thanks for listening and all advise is welcomed....
