I got my HLA DR test back and I am having a hard time understanding how to translate the results using shoemakers instructions. Can anyone help me do this if I post my results?

thanks

All I know is if you are positive for HLA DR4 you are going to have a longer, harder road to recovery, because you don't detoxify normally.

Sorry I don't know any more than that. Hopefully one of his or the other Dr. S's patients will come along and help you with more detail.

Hi

Ok this is what I know and can remember.
The HLA 4 is a different test then the 5 part HLA series from Lab Core which can tell you if you cannot detox well and if you have the gene for not detoxing molds well either.

If you got yours from Lab Core (which I have the number of the lab test that you need)Call Lab Core (should be a number to call on your lab results) and they are real helpful in helping you interpret your results too. I called when I had my test (I did not test positive).
Or talk to your LLMD assuming you have one.

I believe from memory with out looking back at my notes that it is the HLA 15 and HLA 16 series that is a marker=pos. for not detox. molds and abx ect...
The folks I know who have this gene marker take Choletryme (spelling?) to help with the detox issues. Get their houses insepcted for molds and follow strict diets (yeast free) ect...

Hope that was of help.
You should be able to google stuff about the HLA tests too and get some info that way as well.

Best of luck,
Stacyb

Post the results, someone should be able to help. I just got mine last week, and my LLMD couldn't even understand the results. I figured it out, tho. And, lucky me, I am HLA-DR4 positive - not only once but twice! I got it from both parents!

I have the "dreaded genotype" myself - whopee!

I have Mold Warriors (Dr. S's book) around here somewhere - if you post the results I think it's all explained in the book - I'll be happy to look it up for you...

OK it says:

DRB1 0102
DRB1 0103
HLA DQ 03CFTD
HLA DQ 0501

then,

030101, 050101
030101, 050102
030102, 050101
030102, 050102
0309, 050101
0309, 050102
0313, 050101
0313, 050102
0319, 050102

the DRB3, DRB4, and DRB5 are all blank...

So looking at "Mold Warriors" and also talking to someone via PM it appears I fall into the "1-5" category, or the "1-3". The 1-5 is associated with low MSH according to the chart. I dunno about 1-3. It appears then I don't have the mold or Lyme or Staph genes? What significance does the "low MSH" gene have on its own? Any thoughts... ?

Anyone who has seen shoemaker can comment on what the 1-5 HLA type means from a practical sense? Sorry to keep bumping, just curious for more info...

thanks

I have low MSh and do not have the HLA that goes with the low MSH.

But im not really sure what it all means. I havent read mold warriors in about a year.
