In march I have an HLA celiacs test done.

I have positive this allele: DQB1*0201.
I was negative for the: DQA1*0501 and for DQB1*0302.
So I have half of DQ2. That's a chance of 1:210 to get celiacs.
I don't know if I'm heterozigotes or homozigotes, I think it's not have been tested.

Are there anyone with my situation and get celiacs ?

Maybe this gene put me on high risk to be sensitive to gluten ?

I suffered since I was a teenager from IBS, and get very worse since 2010 on. In 2013 was terrible and I cut off almost all gluten. I eat only a few slice of spelt bread at day, nothing else with gluten. I 'm in a sort of low fodmap/paleo diet since 2013 and improved a lot.
I tested also in 2011 for lactose intollerance (positive) and celiacs (ttg igg and iga) and was negative.

That result surprise me because I don't know I carry half DQ2. I think I can also have Crohn's (I have anti asca igg test light positive). Never get any colonscopy or gastroscopy. I read ASCA con be positive in: Crohn's, celiacs, diabete 1 and other GI issues.

I tested for zonulin and I get very high results, so I have leaky gut.

What do you think ?

welcome to the Forum!!!! i am a celiac or so they say.. But i was told the only true test is a biopsy !! and the person who told me that was a GI Specialist If i eat wheat(gluten) i know right away basically eg; stomach pain constant trips to the washroom and blood shows up when going #2 .... In your case i would stop all gluten and see what effect that has..it will take one to two weeks to really show.There are a lot of gluten free products out there and online are sites that can tell you what to watch for in different items,the best defense is a good offense!!! Gluten is in so many products its scary!! http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/glutenfreefoodshoppin1/ss/Gluten-Free-Food-List.htm

Hi Whitefairy,
Leaky gut is related to the gluten molecule that floats in our blood stream right?? Than, mimics a virus or bacteria to trick our immune system. Which launches an attack and the healthy tissue suffers. Does this sound right?

I am trying to figure out if this is what I have. I tested ANA pos for, but not eating gluten stopped many symptoms I was having. The only time I had stomach issues was DEC 2013. For a week or so I would wake up with gas that sounded like nothing I heard before and experienced some dark floating poop. I started the joint pain and bone stiffness in 2012,and than other symptoms crept up. Before I knew it I was so sick.
Jan. went gluten free and solved many problems.

Do you know if celiac problems start out slow with bone and joint problems than symptoms increase over time?
thanks for any help

Celiac does start out slow!! Get tested though as you can be gluten sensitive not a celiac. There are three different forms of gluten sensitivity, being a Celiac is the worst and can kill you!! So get tested!!!
keep your head up!! Things will get better!!! the clouds can't last forever...The sun has to shine soon!!!!
