Celiac Disease Test
At-home sample collection device for measuring levels of antibodies that are elevated if you have a sensitivity to gluten or celiac disease. Laboratory results are provided within 5 days.
Celiac disease is a condition in which ingesting gluten causes severe gut inflammation and the proper absorption nutrients is prevented. It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide, but only about 30% are properly diagnosed. Identification of a gluten intolerance will facilitate diagnosis.
WHO & WHEN?
Symptoms include diarrhoea, bloating, flatulence and anaemia.
This sample kit contains a finger-prick blood collection device, along with clear instructions. Samples collected at home are couriered to and tested at the BioSmart accredited pathology laboratory.
Blood is tested for the following antibodies:
- Deamidated Gliadin IgG*
- Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG*
- Intrinsic Factor
- Deamidated Gliadin IgA**
- Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA**
- Total IgA**
*IgG: Immunoglobulin G
**IgA: Immunoglobulin A
The amount of each antibody is measured which gives insight into the severity of the reaction to gluten. Your celiac report will come in an easy-to-understand format with a detailed explanation of results, what they mean and your next steps.
