Finally My Gluten test results are here.  Can somebody help me understand  this? What does it actually means? am I gluten sensitive or not?

*Gluten Sensitivity Gene Test*
HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1    0202

HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2    0601

Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ   2,1  (Subtype 2,6)

*/Interpretation Of HLA-DQ Testing: /*Although you do not possess the main HLA-DQB1 genes predisposing to celiac sprue (HLA-DQB1*0201 or HLA-DQB1*0302), HLA gene analysis reveals that you have two copies of a gene that predisposes to gluten sensitivity (any DQ1, DQ2 other than by HLA-DQB1*0201, or DQ3 other than by HLA-DQB1*0302). Furthermore, HLA-DQ2 genes other than by HLA-DQB1*0201 can be associated with celiac sprue in rare cases. Having two copies of a gluten sensitive gene means that each of your parents and all of your children (if you have them) will possess at least one copy of the gene. Two copies also means there is an even stronger predisposition to gluten sensitivity than having one gene and the resultant immunologic gluten sensitivity may be more severe.
