Q

Are there autoimmune disease genes different from those that make you at risk for celiac disease?

Yes, some autoimmune disease genes are common, but not all. You can have an autoimmune condition, but if you lack HLA-DQ2 or DQ8 then it is highly unlikely that you will ever have celiac disease. January, 2013
