  1. You are double DQ6, which is more a gluten sensitivity gene We have had at least two celiacs with DQ6 here your Ttg-IgA was negative DGP was not run I think, nor EMA
  2. did you have both the 0201 and the 0302 beta chain and the halv DQ2 (05*) alpha that belogns to the 0201 beta positive? Otherwise the results give no meaning, as one has only two beta chains and two alpha chains. "there were three HLA things -Dq2, DQ5, & Dq8 and a fourth whole celiac item" The...
  3. By the way, the tissue trasnglutaminase-3 is the antibody involved with DH. (celiac in the skin) (and the ttg-6 is for antibodies in the CNS) Those cross react sometimes a bit with the ordinary celiac test Ttg-2, sometimes not. Interesting tests. By they way, do you have DH? The diagnosis...
  4. smri, yes, you have DQ2,5 from each of your parents. Not sure one of them has the normal DQ2,5 in cis since they did not find 0501 , but testing is not totally perfect but still it is DQ2,5
  5. hayley the 05 belongs to 0201 and is 2,5 the 03 belongs do 0301 and is 7.3 smri there are two 05 0201 which are two DQ2,5 Beckyhux, they tested for 02* in beta, and found it, looked for DQ8, negative, and looked for 05* in alpha, not found So it is either 0202 DQ2,2 which is...

  7. Here is the chart to decipher everything: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HLA-DQ
  8. it just means they tested with a test that does not discriminate between 2.2 and 2.5. Instead they look for the 05* in alpha. Here in this context it means he has either half a DQ2,5 (= the 2.1 beta ) or has 2.2, which is a celiac gene too, but with less risk for celiac.
  9. Beckyhux, the question on 0201 or 0202 just means they tested with a method that does not discriminate between them. Instead they test if 05* is present in the alpha chain.
  10. The biopsy for DH will mostlikely be negative if it is near the blisters; it should be taken far from the blisters, and they recommend behind the knees or inside the elbows. The reason is the rashes use up IgA and they must biopsy a spot with IgA still intact
  11. There are also some posting on DH forums who have i inside the mouth. Ouch.
  12. Hairline behind ears and in the back here. By the way, Hidradenitis suppurativa is gluten-related too. But there probably has been no reseach verifying this.
  13. I recommend getting the new and better deamidated gliadin tests, both the IgG and IgA versions.
