Dq1 And Ttg in Related Issues & Disorders Posted May 28, 2011 · Report to Admin Crazy thing! read this: http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/gene/HLA-DQB1 I have HLA-DQB1 0501 and 06**. inhave started suspecting the 06** is an 0602 because of the problems I have. You know, they always tout DQ2 and DQ8 when they talk about celiac disease so I figured I probably had non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Well, been reading over this 0602 info available on the Internet, and it keeps saying DQB1 0602 is associated with celiac disease!!! as the info atbthe link above will tell you, an alternate name for the DQB1 0602 gene is CELIAC1!!! how crazy is that? I do have a lot of dizziness - orthostatic hypotension. I also have issues that appear to be related to hypertension. I've even started to look into following a diabetic diet in addition to the gluten. I have neuropathy issues as well. You might look into LADA, a strange atypical type of diabetes (usually thin people) that usually has adult onset, also associated with 0602. it appears to me, after much reading, that it is a separate type from types 1 or 2 with some similarities to both - thus sometimes called type 1.5. Serious stuff. Hard to get a diagnosis because physicians don't recognize it. But people who have it need to figure it out because it leads to complete lack of insulin production in the body. A pubmed article I read seemed to indicate that a study showed a gluten-free diet seems to delay its progression. a person with LADA will absolutely require multiple insulin shots daily once the thing has run its course. Good luck. I'm about to try and research some (google) on HLA-DQB1, atypical celiac disease - to see if my symptoms line up. This is all very intriguing to me.
