Help Understanding Genetic Test Results
0

3 posts in this topic

Please, if anyone can help me to understand these test results from genetic testing on my son:

Molecular Analysis of DQA1 Genotype:

0501 (HLA-DQ2) Gluten Sensitivity Positive: Yes

Molecular Analysis of DQB1 Genotype:

0201 (HLA-DQ2) Gluten Sensitivity Positive: Yes

0202 (HLA-DQ2) Gluten Sensitivity Positive: Yes

Genetic Analysis of your HLA-DQ genes reveals that you have three positive gene alleles for gene gluten sensitivity.

We had genetic testing done on him because I was diagnosed with celiac disease three months ago after 13 years of numerous gastro problesm. He doesn't have very many gastro issues other than being lactose intolerant. He does however have issues with gaining weight (very thin but eats like a horse!), brain fog, diagnosed as a child with ADD, canker sores, and fatigue. Based off the genetic testing, would it be prudent to go ahead and find a doctor to do the celiac blood testing panel? Thank you in advance for any help understanding the above genetic numbers! This board has been a blessing!

People with gluten intolerance almost always have the HLA-DQ2 and (or) DQ8 genetic markers. Absence of both of these makers indicated a very low chance of having Celiac or DH. Their presence indicated a greater potential of Celiac than for the general populace. Celiac panel blood test is a very good idea; make sure he is being glutened for some weeks before the test or he can get a false negative. I tested negative on all but my genetic tests (HLA-DQ8), but I was on gluten, and elimination of this nasty molecule cured my GI, mood, stiffness, and other problems. It is a hard choice to go gluten-free and follow the diet, but important to life.

Just out of curiosity, what company did your testing? I'm looking to get retested to see what is on the DQA and also to validate the other lab I used.

    • Hi!  I found this article very helpful.  http://hypothyroidmom.com/10-nutrient-deficiencies-every-thyroid-patient-should-have-checked/ Hope this helps.
    • How long have you been gluten-free? Took my dh many months to go away after I mastered the diet.
    • What a great post! I will reply, I'm very interested in this topic too, but I'll do it when I have enough time to do your questions justice.  
    • Hello I also tested negative after being convinced it would be positive. If you're interested in learning more about NCGS I collected a few links here. One thing I wanted to comment on is the idea that NCGS means you don't have to be as careful about slipping from the diet. My own experience is that very small amounts of cross contamination can cause symptoms to return. Mostly neuro rather than GI. Of course others may have different experiences, this condition is not yet fully understood. However this is what one of the leading researchers Umberto Volta says: The good news is all my symptoms resolve on the diet. Hopefully that will also be the case for your daughter too. You will both find things get easier as you get more used to the diet, better at reading labels and more comfortable with the 'safe' brands you get to know and trust. It will get easier for you both, just may be rough at the outset.  Best of luck!
    • Kareng, you bring up an interesting question.  She sees a pediatric GI who diagnosed her with NCGI.  She tested negative on blood work and biopsy was negative 3 years ago.  She continued struggling with stomaches, vomiting, headaches, emotional behavior, fatigue or hyperactivity, constipation, etc.  he thought for sure she was celiac 3 years ago but tested negative.  When we returned for a follow up as the symptoms were increasing, he diagnosed the NCGI.  I do have to say besides the snow cone incident, she has felt better the last 3 weeks than in a long time.  Should I be looking for a second opinion?  I just want her to feel better.
