Gene Result Question
0

5 posts in this topic

I finally got our son's stool and gene test back from Enterolab. Here are the results. I have a question about the gene results - Does this mean he has multiply genes or just subtypes . It is very confusing.

Gluten sensitivity stool test - 13 units (shows sensitivity)

All other tests for normal

Gene test:

Molecular analysis - HLA-DQB1 *0201, 0602

Serologic analysuis: HLA-DQ 2, 1 (subtype 2,6)

It looks like he needs to be on the diet. Any comments? Thanks

Within each set of genes there are many subtypes. The number *0201 is the exact gene your son has. Then withthin the grouping of *02xx genes there are subtypes. Same with any of the genes, so the *0602 is the DQ1, subtype 6.

The genes pan out as follows:

DQB1 *0201 = DQ2, subtype 2

DQB1 *0602 = DQ1, subtype 6 (OR it can also be referred to as DQ6)

He has 2 genes, one from you and one from your husband. BOTH of these genes predispose someone to a gluten sensitivity. DQ2 is associated with celiac disease and gastro problems, while DQ1 is associated with gluten induced neurological problems. I would definitely take a look at you and your husband and any other children.

There are some pretty good explanations on these genes and their typing on the Braintalk forum. Here is one post that gives some links to help understand your gene naming:

Help with interpreting genetic results.

Thank you , thank you, thank you. I thought no one was ever going to reply!! That was very helpful. and actually cleared up somethings. It was very interesting that you said that that the DQ1 (I think) was tied to nuerological problems because he has many of these that we haven't been able to figure out why. Thank you so much!

Hi ADevoto: Enterolab usually adds an interpretation of test results with their lab test results email. What did they say about the genetic results? If you have questions, write to Dr. Fine at E-lab. He WILL answer your email promptly. ;)

They just said that the HLA - DQ2 is the main gene that predisposes to gluten sensitivity and celiac. Can also prodisse to microscopic colitis and other autoimmune syndromes. Nothing about DQ1. But Dr. Fine did return an email to me that just said the above and that DQ1 usually doesn't lead to celiac but to sensitivity only.

I just wanted to understand more. I know that there is high % of people that are celiac that have the DQ2 gene but I really need to find the statistic that show what % of people that have the gene actually become celiac. Need more "proof" for my husband.

    • MelissaNZ,  Has your daughter been checked for vitamin deficiencies??? Vitamin D deficiency symptoms include urinary incontinence, oral candidiasis (thrush), skin rashes, bumps on the backs of arms, joint pain, distended stomach and short stature.  Bones can't grow much without vitamin D.  Vitamin D deficiency causes delayed gastric emptying (food doesn't move through the gastrointestinal tract at a normal speed and the intestines bloat) which explains your daughter's delayed reaction to the cake.   Vitamin A deficiency is also a cause of bumps on the back of the arms. Vitamin A deficiency causes vision problems. Vitamin A and D are both fat soluble vitamins.  Absorption of fats is a problem for Celiacs.  So is absorption of B vitamins and important minerals. B Complex vitamins are water soluble and must be replenished every day. Skin rashes are associated with several B vitamins like niacin (B3), B12, and thiamine (B1).   I went through a period of severe malnutrition prior to diagnosis.  It was not a pleasant experience.  I had symptoms similar to your daughter's, including the incontinence, which resolved on vitamin D supplementation.   Please, please have your daughter tested for vitamin D deficiency.  And have her B vitamins checked as well.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption.  Malabsorption causes deficiency diseases.  Newly diagnosed Celiacs need to be checked for deficiencies.   I hope this helps.  
    • I will try to make my long story short, I have been searching my whole life for a diagnosis,  I have seen pretty much every doctor possible I even went through a spinal tap recently because they thought I had multiple sclerosis,  when I was younger I was always throwing up and having stomach problems, a couple hospital visits they thought I had appendicitis, I started having a neurological symptoms as well as  anxiety and depression,  The fatigue was just over bearing,  I was having numbness and tingling and muscle spasms all the time eventually started having seizures,  which kind of cycled through and stop happening after a couple months,  and then it dawned upon me my brother has celiac pretty severely, my grandmother also has celiac, my dad does as well, I don't know why I never thought that it could be my issue, for the last week I have   Been gluten-free and steering clear of cross-contamination,  my dizziness is improved my fatigue is improved as well as rashes I was getting on my arms  and sides,  I have no more muscle jerks or spasms, The problem is I have horrible insurance and I cannot afford testing, so I am at least trying to do it an home blood test,  I know it's not very accurate on telling me if I have celiac or not,   But the thought I may never know for sure if I have it is very daunting.  My family keeps telling me you don't need  to spend thousands of dollars to have a doctor tell you you can't eat something you already know you can't. Just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has a vi just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has advice,  I don't want to be known as one of those people who believe they have something and people with the disease frown upon them it's a very scary thing to think about. 
    • ...ON a side note this is quite easy, you can make your own out of any gluten-free Bread mix, I recently started using a coconut flour blend for this.......Most often people associate caraway with Rye Bread so you just add caraway seeds to the dough and a bit more vinegar to sour it a tad and BAM gluten-free Rye Bread knock off. I think Authentic Foods even has a additive to put in bread mixes to make it taste like Rye Bread....Or you can buy it preamade, I have issues with all the other ingredients but as for one of the best gluten-free Breads out the Canyon House makes a Rye like bread https://canyonglutenfree.com/buy-gluten-free-bread-products/Gluten-Free-Rye-Deli-Sandwich-Bread.html  
    • Took me less than a minute, although why did they need our addy and phone?
    • As mentioned before you said she had rashes, have they checked if that is DH? That is a positive sign of celiac and those with the DH manifestation can have problems getting a postive with the gut biopsy.   Here are some links. https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ https://www.gluten.org/resources/getting-started/dermatitus-herpetiformis/ Please read up on this. She can get the rash tested for the disease if it is DH.
