When to test
You should take the Celiac Test if you experience unpleasant symptoms after eating products that contain wheat, rye, barley, and oats. The sample must be collected following six weeks of a gluten-containing diet to ensure accurate results.
You should take the test if:
You are experiencing digestive discomfort for over two week
You have had diarrhea for over two weeks
You have thyroid issues
You have type 1 diabetes
You have Turner syndrome
You suffer from rheumatoid arthritis
You suffer from colitis (inflammation of the inner lining of the colon)
The sample must be collected in the morning, Monday - Friday, and returned on the same day. This sample must be collected following at least 6 weeks of a diet containing gluten.
Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG)
Tissue Transglutaminase is an enzyme that repairs damage in the body. Low levels of transglutaminase tissue in the blood are indicative of Celiac disease. The harmful antibodies in their place are known as anti-tissue transglutaminase.
Endomysial Antibodies (EMA)
When the body perceives that it is under attack, it produces endomysial antibodies (EMA). These auto-antibodies cause intestinal swelling and prevent nutrient absorption into the blood. High levels of endomysial antibodies indicate that you have Celiac disease.
