Who should take the test?
Do you usually suffer from flatulence, diarrhea or stomach pain after the consumption of gluten-containing foods such as bread, cake or noodles?
Celiac disease is the chronic disease caused by the intolerance of gluten in food. Gluten is a component of various cereals such as wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelled, kamut, greens, einkorn and emmer. Because of this intolerance the mucosa becomes damaged. As a result, various nutrients can be absorbed only partially or not at all. The rigorous lifelong renunciation of gluten-containing foods can restore and maintain the mucosal function.
The test analyzes the values of the following analytes:
- Secretory IgA
- Transglutaminase IgA
Our Gluten Intolerance Test helps you to find out whether you are suffering from gluten intolerance, which will allow you to eliminate your complaints by changing your diet.
How does it work?
You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each analyte and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that, the results include graphs showing whether your are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.
What will my results tell me?
Your results will provide detailed information about whether your secretory IgA and Transglutaminase IgA levels are normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?
