Understanding Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes chronic inflammation in the small intestine, often mistaken for gluten intolerance. It triggers symptoms such as diarrhea, weight loss, bloating, and skin issues due to an adverse reaction to gliadin, a component of gluten in wheat, barley, rye, and spelt. GetTested's Celiac/Gluten Intolerance Test is designed to identify this condition accurately.

GetTested's Celiac/Gluten Intolerance Test

This test targets antibodies against deamidated gliadin peptides (anti-DGP) of classes IgA and IgG, which are pivotal for diagnosing celiac disease. Early diagnosis through GetTested's Celiac/Gluten Intolerance Test can prevent further intestinal damage and associated health complications.

Rapid Testing at Home

GetTested's Celiac/Gluten Intolerance Rapid Test efficiently detects class IgA and IgG anti-DGP antibodies in your blood, indicating a potential celiac disease presence.

Common Nutrient Deficiencies in Celiac Disease

Celiac disease can lead to various nutrient deficiencies due to the damage it causes in the small intestine, affecting nutrient absorption. Key nutrients that individuals with celiac disease often find themselves deficient in include:

  • Iron: Reduced absorption can lead to anemia, a common issue in celiac disease.
  • Calcium and Vitamin D: Essential for bone health, deficiencies in these nutrients increase the risk of osteoporosis.
  • Folate and Vitamin B12: Important for red blood cell formation, their deficiency can also result in anemia.
  • Zinc: Necessary for immune function and skin health, zinc deficiency is common in individuals with celiac disease.
  • Vitamin B6: Crucial for metabolism and brain function, a lack of Vitamin B6 can affect overall health and well-being.

Identifying and addressing these deficiencies through diet or supplementation is crucial for managing celiac disease and improving quality of life.

Exploring Additional Sensitivity and Intolerance Tests from GetTested

If you suspect celiac disease or gluten intolerance, other factors like allergies or various food intolerances could also be responsible for your discomfort. GetTested provides more tests, including:

  • Allergy Test: Identifies allergies to 38 substances, including wheat, by finding IgE antibodies in your blood.
  • Food Intolerance Test (80 Items): Checks for intolerances to 80 substances, such as wheat and gluten, by finding IgG antibodies.

FAQ

How is the Celiac/Gluten Intolerance test carried out?

Our Celiac/Gluten Intolerance test is a home test kit with instant results. After ordering, we will send you a kit with everything you need to perform the test yourself. Results are obtained within a few minutes.

What will the result tell me?

It will give a positive or negative result. A positive result shows the presence of anti-DGP antibodies in the blood A positive result means that the levels of class IgA and class IgG anti-DGP antibodies is approximately 20 U/ml and therefore indicates a probable celiac disease.

When should I take the test?

The Test can be performed at any time of the day, on a full or empty stomach.

If I'm on a gluten free diet, can I take the test?

No. In celiac disease patients on a gluten-free diet the symptoms and the level of disease-associated antibodies decrease until they are no longer detectable

    Hi, My 9 year old daughter Cassia has been off gluten for nearly 2 months following her doctors advice. Last Friday Cassia had some chicken nuggets and a malteser ice-cream on Sunday and her symptoms have started again. Cassia had a little nose bleed yesterday and her nasal congestion has come back a bit also. The red ring around her lips especially the bottom lip has started to appear again. It seems that a little gluten effects Cassia in a negative way now. Cassia also went to see a dietician last week and we were told that her weight is just ok and it seems that Cassia is losing weight. The dietician said this could be due to her small intestine not able to absorb proper vitamins thru her food due to damage possibly done by the gluten. Cassias immunoglobulin E levels were also elevated a couple of months ago. My daughter has gluten intolerance and what tes tis best to see what's going on?

    The test worked fine and gave me a neat negative result, but I'm a little disappointed to realise (by reading the info - it's my own fault) that this test is 20 U/ml threshold, whereas a usual test for Coeliac by a doctor would be "IgA/IgG TTG of at least 7 U/ml or IgG DGP of at least 10 U/ml and a negative test was defined as IgA /IgG TTG under 7 U/ml and IgG DGP under 10 U/ml" according to NIH. Other, lower U/ml are quoted by other doctors. So I feel the test was adequate but not really fit for purpose.
