Can anyone help me figure out this genetic panel? These are my son's results. I know he has a very high chance of having celiac disease, and his doctor believes that he does in fact have it, she diagnosed him already. I'd just like to know what each of these things stand for.

Thanks for any help.

What category does he fall in? I only see his other risk alleles

DQ2 heterozygous, Increased Risk 10X, Relative Risk HIGH

What do/does the other risk alleles mean? I don't understand that part at all.

Thanks for any help!

He has one risk allele, DQ2.5, and one non-risk allele which hasn't been specified. That gives him 10x risk for celiac with respect to the general US population.

I'm not sure what else you're asking. What do you mean by "each of these things"? Is this article helpful?
