This Celiac Disease testing package looks for antibodies which typically develop in patients with Celiac Disease. This package includes the Deamidated Gliadin Antibody IgA and Tissue Transglutaminase IgA tests as well as a Serum IgA Quantification. Some Celiac patients may have a condition which results in minimal IgA antibody production. Patients with IgA deficiency might show false negatives on IgA antibody tests and require other types of testing for an accurate diagnosis.
Celiac testing is advisable for patients who are experiencing symptoms associated with Celiac Disease or are aware of family members who have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
This package contains two commonly ordered screening tests for Celiac Disease. If a person’s test results indicate they are IgA deficient, they may wish to order a test which detects a different types of antibodies such as the Celiac Disease Complete Panel.
A final diagnosis for Celiac Disease should be confirmed by a doctor and may require an intestinal biopsy. For more information on Celiac Disease Testing, please visit the Celiac Disease Foundation at www.celiac.org.
Turnaround time for the Celiac Disease Antibody Screen is typically 1-3 business days.
This celiac blood test has no fasting requirements. Please note it is recommended that prior to taking this test, a regular diet including items that contain gluten should be followed for 2 weeks as a gluten-free diet may not provide an accurate representation of potential gluten sensitivity.More Celiac Test & Disease Info
