I got my Genetic Testing Done and my DR. says well I'm not a Genetestis so I couldn't understand the results so she went on line to try to interpret them herself. My HLA-DQ2 was positive and my HLA-DQ8 was negative the paper says LOCUS DQB1 Alleles 02,0603. Can someone please tell me what this means. The DR. Said she could not tell one way or another and said well there's nothing wrong with you. I contacted the place that did the testing they said the DR. would have to call and they suggested I call the hospital for more help which I did but they couldn't tell me much either. Since the Dr. pretty much brushed me off I'm not getting anywhere with her. So Please if anyone could help me understand this I would greatly appreciate it!!!

I'm a bit confused myself...

DQ2 is one of the main genes for celiac, although to know your risk you'd have to know the alpha portion of that gene. There's a big difference between DQ2.5 and DQ2.2. It is possible, with that gene alone, that you could have celiac disease. Have you done any other tests?

If "0603" is your other gene (DQ6), that's actually a good thing. According to Wikipedia, DQ6.3 gives you protection from a lot of autoimmune disorders and some protection against HIV.

Did the doctor give you the actual report? Or is that just the note he/she wrote down for you?

She gave me the report. I have had Blood test done which came back negative but I was already on the diet. I also have had both scopes done but GI DR. still won't give up the results of biopsy. I've been to so many Dr.'s they have asked for biopsy results from him he will not send them.. So I'm going to have to go in and demand them. I'm just so frustrated and tired of getting the run around and the typical there's nothing wrong with you and it's all in your head diagnosis. The testing was performed at H & I Laboratory in Salt Lake City UT.

Yeah, your GI needs to cough those up. Legally, he cannot keep them from you. Doctor to doctor is another thing, but you have a right to see your medical records. Go get 'em! :P

The doctor does not mean what DQ2 and DQ6 means?

Well, I have seen patients reporting that some gastros seem to think celiac is to be excluded unless both alleles are positive for the main two celiac genes....that is not true.

You just need one of them to have a greater risk for being celiac.

even without a celiac gene, there is still a risk of being celiac, since the DQ genes only can explain half the risk. The greatest risk is having a celiac relative.

    • These are all low in fermentable carbs, but limit amounts to see what is tolerated (for us, 2 tortillas, two biscuits, one sandwich round) and don't load up on lots of baked goods in a day  I try to limit it to one baked good per day   Tortilla/ flat bread:  http://comfybelly.com/2013/04/tortillas-and-a-book-giveaway/#.WScABoFOmEc Sandwich Rounds (good with peanut butter): http://comfybelly.com/2013/08/sandwich-rounds-using-almond-flour/#.WScAm4FOmEc Biscuit (these are amazing. Make them sweet and serve with strawberries and coconut cream, savory and make sausage sandwiches, etc): http://healthyindulgences.net/2008/08/easy-low-carb-gluten-free-biscuits/
    • Thank you so much for sharing... we struggle with my daughters diet but it has only been 10 months so we are still learning the ropes. 
    • Also want to say that a lot of gluten free  recipes are not good for SIBO- too many starches. Also large quantities of almond flour or coconut flour have too much fermentable fibers so be careful with Paleo/SCD recipes too.  It's a bit of a balancing act in what you make and how much is eaten (that's why I like fast Tract- you can qualify things and it works).
    • My daughter is now 11 and we are finally on top of her SIBO (since she was 8).  Diet is super important. I know it's hard with kids, but a diet low in fermentable carbs is key. Especially when SIBO appears to be chronic.  I suggest looking into the Fast Tract Diet. There is a book and an app. Using glycemic index, fiber, and total carbs, the diet tells you the fermentation potential of different foods. There is a point system. The goal is to keep your fermentation potential points between 20-30 per day when you are experiencing SIBO symptoms, and then slowly increase to 40 points for the long term maintenance.  It is important to note that Fast Tract is not strictly gluten free. So you have to choose that yourself.  This system has worked very well for my daughter.  She also takes Atrantil daily and her GI at U of C suggested once a month going on a preventative herbal antibiotic.  Honestly, this is the best she has felt in years. Avoiding gluten is key...this is the other part of the equation. Incidentally, since gluten affects her nervous system, I think it has affected her motility, hence the SIBO.  So, diet is important and kids are difficult. Avoiding most grains is important since they are super high in fermentable carbs. BUT, there are some grains that are lower in fermentable carbs that help:  Jasmine Rice (cook in water like pasta and drain. Do not use left over because cooling causes resistant starches to form and that is aweful for SIBO).  Also mashed Red Potatoes (soak in salt water for 30 minutes to get most starch out, then rinse well, boil, drain, mash.  Again don't cool and reheat because of resistant starch). I have a terrific biscuit recipe and tortilla/flat bread recipe that I can post too.
