I have been reading and thinking about everyone and their enterolab test. I seem to find that most of us that have a dq1 gene have malabsorption when we get tested threw enterolab. Has anyone else noticed this.

So if you have the dq1, what was your malabsorption score.

(edit)

My daughter had malabsorption somewhere in the low 300's range. She's double dq1.

I only carry one and had i think 374 i would have to look it up, but my stepson had no malabsorption but the celiac gene wiht dq1, i just find it odd that dq1 seem to have an high malabsorption compared to others.

what do others think about this.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but since it's about double DQ1, which I am as well, I hope you don't mind. I had a mildly elevated malabsorption score (346), but in addition to this question of malabsorption, I'm wondering if any of you know of any further characteristics associated with double DQ1. I've heard it's associated with neurological symptoms, but I don't really know what that means. Anyone know anything further about this or any other problems related to these genes? I'm trying to learn as much as I can about the genetics of this, so any input would be helpful.

I can't answer this question with any level of authority. But, my daughter is a very cranky, uncooperative, DRAMATIC little girl on gluten. I mean hysterics of gargantuan proportions, completely inappropriate for her age. When we started the diet, her true personality came back.

Here are a couple abstracts. I don't know if the disorders mentioned exhaust the possibilities of neurological reactions to gluten. Probably not. I recall seeing one article, I think it was by the doctor here with the long name that mentioned the prevalence of DQ1 in the population he was examining, not just the typical "celiac genes." I don't recall him mentioning double DQ1, though. I wish I could figure out how I got access to that article for free one time! I should have printed it or bookmarked it.

My son is a double DQ1, and he was in the low 300 range. He has been dairy and wheat free for over a year and now we are pulling out gluten.

It is interesting to read how many dq1 people have malabsorption scores that are high or above the 300 mark. It just makes me wonder if maybe we have some sort of diease that is not proven yet but correlates with celiac. I am having a hard time putting what im thinking into words here. Im still ercovering from being glutened this week. When i can think more clearly i will type it all out. But do oyu all think, or am i just pulling at straws trying to figure this out.

Single DQ1 gene.....malabsorption score = 912.

Even though Enterolab tests were positive (IgA and tTG) the cause of malabsorption was/is unrelated to gluten. Not to say that gluten didnt contribute...but there were other issues causing the malabsorption in my case.

    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
