Genetic Test- Results
0

10 posts in this topic

I got my son's resutls from the genetic test which is:

HLA-DQ2 (DQA*05/DQB1*02) Positive

HLA-DQ8 (DQA*03/DQB1*0302) Negative

HLA-DQA1* 05

HLA-DQA1* -

HLA-DQB1* 0201

HLA-DQB1* 0301

Note: The patient has one of the HLA-DQ variants associated with celiac disease. More than 97% of celiac patients carry either HLA-DQ2 (DQA1*05/DQB1*02) or HLA-DQ8 (DQA1*03/DQB1*0302) or both. However, 39% of the general U. S. population carry these HLA-DQ variants, as a consequence, the presence of HLA-DQ2 or DQ8 or both variants is not per se diagnostic of celiac disease.

:huh::huh: Is 0201 same as 02 on top?

My genetic test is:

HLA- DQ2 (DQA*05/DQB1*02) negative

HLA- DQ8 (DQA*03/DQB1*0302 negative

HLA- DQA1* 01

HLA- DQA1* 05

HLA- DQB1* 0301

HLA- DQB1* 0502

In the both results I can see HLA-DQA1*05. I have just a half a gene DQ2 and my son have the whole gene DQ2.

I would like to ask you, if anybody knows which side of our family members gave us that gene(I mean father, or mother side)? Can you even tell?

alrighty, hopefully a moderator or more knowledgeable member than me will chime in because i THINK i get it- BUT these gene numbers/language is very hard to translate.

i THINK your son has 1 DQ gene: DQ 2.5 (which ive read is THEE most classic celiac gene)

and then i THINK you have 2 DQ genes: DQ1 and DQ5 (they're not "classic" but new studies, including out of europe say all the DQ genes have Celiac possibilities.

so, that is my GUESS at translating this. and im thinking your son's father has a DQ2 gene.

?? hope i got it right ??

It's mean that he needs to be tested? He does have the hypothyroidism and high blood pressure (in his case it is genetic, his father and mother both have it. He - from 24 years of age).

"he" as in your husband? having at least 1 DQ 2 gene doesnt mean he has it, but he does have the potential. many celiacs dont have any symptoms. if your husband is regularly ingesting gluten-> then it couldnt hurt at all to get a blood test!

oh, actually- if your son has it- then all 1st degree relatives should absolutely get tested.

When I told my husband that he should get tested too, he was so shocked. He is against the all tests. I gave him to try some of my gluten free and milk free substitutes. It was priceless to see his reaction. Some of them are very, very, very bad. He don't want to even think about going on gluten free diet. This is funny.

I was checking Hla-DQ1 in Wikipedia and there are always talking about alleles DQA1*0101, DQA1*0102 - 0103 -0104.

I have only DQA1*01 and the other half DQB1*0502 which can be the part of DQ1. I need to have DQA1*0102:DQB1*0502 to have HLA-DQ1. Is this true?

Is HLA-DQ1 gene to be considered for celiac disease? Why The Quest laboratory didn't included all known variants for celiac disease?

I also think he got the DQ2 from Dad and yes he should be tested. As should, if you are diagnosed, your brothers and sisters and Mom and Dad. If you have any other children they should be tested also.

There is a lot of really tasty gluten free food out there. Have him try some Snyder's pretzels, Pamelas Double chocolate chunk cookies, A pizza made with Gluten Free Pantries French Bread Mix to name just a couple. Don't even tell him the stuff is gluten free just put it in front of him. When I first went gluten free, for example, the only bread I could find was Ener-g, it has the consistance of styrofoam,IMHO and I didn't even know to microwave or toast it. Yes that stuff was disgusting. Again in my opinion for you Ener-g bread lovers. Now they have bread like Grainless Baker, UDI, Kinnickkinnick and more and better baked goods every day.

Make your dinners gluten free, you DH doesn't even have to know. So many regular dinner items can be made gluten-free or are naturally so that you should be able to do it without him noticing. Then after a couple weeks ask him how he likes your cooking lately. When it gets the rave reviews then let him know they were all gluten free. After some steak and potatos, chicken are rice, fish and homemade fries, stuffed peppers, parmesan oven baked chicken etc. he might change his mind on how horrible the diet is.

As to whether or not the DQ1... is a celiac associated gene, well it is in my case. My gene is DQB1 0303 or also called DQ9. Companies in the US generally only test for the two most recognized celiac genes. There are actually many more. It used to be considered to be 9 that were associated with celiac new research is looking at as many as 27. Gene testing does not diagnose celiac or tell you that you have it. It is simply part of the puzzle but not the end piece.

yes- everything that ravenwood said :D

im sorry, but all of those allelle numbers and complete gene numbers really confuse me.

i wish they would always just translate it simply for me.

my understanding is that DQ2 & DQ8 account for nearly 95% of Celiac cases. AND i believe that there's about 27 DQ genes that all have potential and possibility for Celiac. companies in america just dont test for all of them yet.

everyone in your family should be tested. (like i HOPE for everyone in my family to be tested.)

undiagnosed celiac can POTENTIALLY lead to a lot of unneccesary illness & even premature death-> our families should get tested so they can be around for a long time :)

Son must be DQ7,5 and DQ2,5, and you are DQ7,5 but they did not tell you that.

They did not report the other 05* alpha chain, they just reported positive for 05 and often labs report it this way.

We know he must be double 05* in the alpha alleles since you have the DQ7,5.

See the other answer on this forum here, the other lab did report the DQ7,5 as half a DQ2 gene. (the 05* alpha chain is half a DQ2,5 gene and it contributes more to celiac than just the 02 part)

Of course father has a DQ2,5, at least one.

My daughter has exactly the same results as your son. Did you figure out what the last for lines of the testing represents? She is negative on all the screenings but low Immunologlbun A and high gladian antibodies IGG

I've been reading up on HLA-DQ8 and DQ2, there appears to be one disease that could mask itself as celiac. That's schmidt's disease. Very similar symptoms between the two. I've had two celiac panels and my igg and iga were showing autoimmune disease. Schmidt's is also an autoimmune http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schmidt_syndrome  Heres the long list including celiac disease http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autoimmune_disease

 

I am interested in getting re tested, being gluten free has helped but I'm still really suffering daily, as if I can't keep up. Been on a gluten free diet for 6-7 years. Diagnosed after I have lymphona cancer. My blood pressure is and always has been abnormally low but my heart is strong and healthy. I do have hypoglycemia, dizziness and numbness on a regular basis even when I do not have cross contamination from gluten. The first sign of cross contamination is the bubbles building in my mouth by my tonsils, then the whole digestive reaction happens. I could vry well have celiac disease and I do not want to risk a "test" to see if I'm wrong (eating gluten), but I do have very weak hormone production/balance and low energy which I counter act with sugar. I've given up the coffee.

 

So I want to get re tested and talk about this. Not sure where to begin though?

    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come! Best wishes Matt
    • Please share what was so difficult about starting your account.
    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings   
    • Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.
