  • I'm trying to make sense of my genetic test results for celiac disease. I carry both the HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 genes. I understand what Punnett squares are and all that, but I'm trying to figure out the probability of my daughter inheriting one of these genes. It would be 100% for one of them, correct? Her father hasn't been tested but he displays some celiac-like symptoms so he may carry one or two genes for celiac. I understand that 40% of the population carries celiac genes and that 1 in 100 develop celiac. I'd really like to see this explained by use of a Punnett square. Click here for answer
