Dr. Braverman, I have a consult scheduled with you in early May and we will discuss this issue but I am really anxious to find out sooner what the below means.I received copies of my lab tests (Reprosource)and will forward to your assistant. Per Dr. Sher, my husband and I are partial DQ match.


Mine
DQ Beta 02, 02
HLA-A 02, 24
HLA-B 45, 51
HLA-C 06, 07
HLA - DRB1 03, 11, DRB3 Present
DQ Alpha 4.1, 4.1

DH
DQ Beta 02, 02
HLA-A 02, 24
HLA-B 45, 51
HLA-C 06, 07
HLA - DRB1 03, 11, DRB3 Present
DQ Alpha 1.3, 4.1


1) is it normal that all the HLA and the DQ Beta tests results are identical? Is this a match or this is how it is supposed to be?

2) DQ Alpha - Is this partial or absolute match?

Thank you!

Dr. Braverman

DQ alpha mathcing alone is not an issue , as I have posted and spoken about on my videos. So wehter partial or complete this is not the issue. what is the issue here are the other matches that you have , most notably the complete HLA C match and the overall number of matches. This is your issue but we can treat this, do not despair. I look forward to speaking with you.

Thank you for your promt response. It is reassuring to know there is a solution out there. Dr. Sher did not mention anything for the other matches. When i looked at the results today for a while i thought it must be an error because every single line was identical. I told my husband that we are so meant for each other that even our immune systems are identical.

Looking forward to speaking with you in May!.
