At home celiac test to identify celiac disease antibodies with online results in 5 days.
Celiac disease is caused by an immune response to a protein called gluten. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, barley and oats.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system believes that gluten is a threat. The body then produces antibodies that attack the immune system with an enzyme in the intestine called tissue transglutaminase (tTG)
Immune responses damage the small intestine and interferes with the absorption of nutrients from food, therefore, a person who has celiac disease could become malnourished regardless of how much food is consumed.
Tissue transglutaminase (TAA/IgA): 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 Antibodes (EMA/AEAB): When the body perceives that it is under attack, it produces endomysial antibodies (EMA/AEAB). These auto antibodies cause intestinal swelling and prevent the absorption of nutrients into the blood. High levels of endomysial antibodes indicates that you have celiac disease.
You should get tested if your first degree family (mother, father, brother, sister) suffers from celiac disease as it is a genetic condition. You should also get tested.
