    I have just read Dr. Shoemakers book Mold Warriors and he said people with mutations in HLA-DR have a harder time detoxing mold.

    On my report I saw two HLA categories (MTHFR SUPPORT)

    HLA rs7775228 (–)
    HLA rs2155219 (++)

    http://www.snpedia.com/index.php/Rs1063355 this site says this is the one shoemaker uses….
    Rs1063355 im TT

    can someone give me some info? THanks

    If this is from 23 and Me, I don't think you can obtain your HLA DR status from that.

    You can't obtain HLA DR status from 23andMe. You'll have to have it done at LabCorp.

    Only HLA-DRA can be fully determined or partially determined (narrowed down to a couple possibilities) with 23andMe. The other HLA types mostly involve SNPs which have 3 or 4 possible alleles. 23andMe can only handle 2 possible alleles per SNP.
