  1. Yes. I have Hashimoto’s, among other issues. tTG was < 2, IGA was mid-normal range. I will likely follow up with a gastroenterologist. The page you point me to does have info on DNA testing. It mentions the gene pair for DQ 8. I have only one of the two - the beta chain 0302. I am trying to find out if you always have to have the DQ2 or DQ8 combo to have the potential to develop Celiac disease or if a partial on DQ8 also gave a higher risk. I’ll keep looking. Thanks for your input.
  2. They did. My antibodies were neg. The endo doesn't like those tests, and he prefers the DNA testing. His take is that I have one of the genes and am at least gluten intolerant. He is calling Labcorp to get a more detailed report, which we'll go over in a month. I'm just trying to make sense of it all. There's a lot of info hitting me at one time, and I'm trying to understand it all.
  3. Hi, I have scoured the forums looking for an answer. My endocrinologist tested me for various vitamins and did the HLA testing. I am deficient in all vitamins - A, E, D, B12, Folate, Iodine. This points to an absorption problem - not likely SIBO due to folate level being so low. The HLA testing came back, and I do not have either DQ2, DQ8 haplotypes. I did test positive for the DQB1*0302 allele. It appears I also have DQA1*01:02, DQA1*02:01, and DQB1*06:04. My Labcorp report says I was positive for DQ8, noting only the one allele. However, it says I am not positive for any of the risk alleles. That doesn't seem right. My endo encouraged me to go gluten-free. I'm ok with that. Just looking to see if this allele makes me more likely to have a gluten issue, or if I need to go down another path. I would appreciate any insight you guys can offer.
