WHAT IS CELIAC DISEASE?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition caused by permanent gluten intolerance to gliadin, a class of protein found in cereal.
When people with a genetic predisposition to this condition consume this protein, it causes serious damage to the intestinal mucosa. As a result of villous atrophy, nutrients in food are no longer absorbed.
The immune system responds to gluten by producing antibodies that disrupt the mucous membrane of the small intestine.
About 1 in 100 people suffer from celiac disease.
Over 50% of new celiac patients are 60 years old or older.
In 5 - 10% of patients celiac disease runs in the family.
HOW DOES A GLUTEN INTOLERANCE TEST WORK?
The Coeliac Screen™ test is designed to detect IgA, IgG and IgM antibodies in tissue transglutaminase, the main autoantigen that causes celiac disease.
A drop of blood from a finger is used for sampling.
The test can be taken during your doctor consultation.
Test results will be processed within 10 minutes.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TAKE THE TEST?
Celiac disease is a serious condition which affects approximately 2-3% of the population. If left untreated, it can lead to serious consequences as vitamin and mineral deficiency, low body weight, anemia and cancer of the small intestine. The Coeliac Screen™ test helps diagnose celiac disease with a maximum probability of 94%.
Detection of antibodies of the IgG/IgM class will help to obtain a correct diagnosis and avoid false negative results in patients with a deficiency of antibodies of the IgA class.
