    I had a test from my doctor and he said all was good. Could you have a look at it and tell me if I should stay away from wheat. He said I did not need too.


    HLA Typing Celiac Interp   see note
    The patient has one of the HLA-DQ variants associated
    with celiac disease.
    More than 97% of celiac patients carry either
    HLA-DQ2(DQA1*05/DQB1*02) or HLA-DQ8(DQA1*03/DQB1*0302)
    or both. However, 39% of the general U.S. population
    carry these HLA-DQ variants, as a consequence, the
    presence of HLA-DQ2 or DQ8 or both variants is not per
    se diagnostic of celiac disease.
    HLA-DQ2   Positive
    HLA-DQ8   Negative
    HLA-DQA1#1   1
    HLA-DQA1#2   5
    HLA-DQB1#1   201
    HLA-DQB1#2   602

    You should avoid gluten based on these results.
