Could you explain the importance of knowing both the alpha and beta portions in the genetic testing?  As far as I know, they only tested the beta allele on mine and our kids’.  I have done some research saying that double DQ 1’s are typically much more sensitive  than even the “regular” celiac’s with DQ2 &/or 8 (to maybe even to less than 5ppm?).  I am finding that this may be the case with me as I am having much trouble feeling healthy again, and not getting the drastic improvements reported my many; any thoughts on this?
