About the Test: It is a non-invasive test for finding immunologic sensitivity to gluten or celiac sprue. The test analyses for the presence of one or more genes that have been associated with having gluten sensitivity, celiac sprue, and other autoimmune syndromes. The test works on a gluten-free diet and it does not require reintroduction of gluten into the diet if already gluten-free.
Who can take this test?:
The test can be taken by anyone that:
- Has issues with gluten-rich foods
- Has a genetic pre-disposition for celiac disease.
- Symptomatic individuals
The test looks for an important genetic marker HLA DQB1 genes. This one time test provides a clear lifetime genetic profile. A positive result means a predisposition to developing immunologic sensitivity to gluten or celiac sprue. A negative result rules out celiac disease for life. The test can be taken by adults and children.
