  1. I am trying to understand the gene test for my daughter and I. I was tested through Labcorp: DQA1*01:ARSW, 05:01 DQB1*02:01, 05:04 Daughter, through Enterolab HLA-DQB1 Allele 1 0504 HLA-DQB1 Allele 2 0402 HLA-DQ 1,4 (subtype 5,4) My labcorp results show I am DQ2/DQ1 positive. The alpha is also listed as positive on my results. Does this mean I also carry the half-gene (I do not understand the alpha portion). Also, since my daughter wasn't tested for the alpha portion, could I have also passed on the alpha portion and we missed it with the gene test through Enterolab? My daughter has the DQ1 gene (which I understand is a "gluten sensitive" gene) from me and is definitely gluten sensitive and on the gluten-free diet, but I am wanting to understand her risk for celiac? I am diagnosed with celiac already. Thanks to all for your help!!
