Gluten intolerance causes our immune system to respond by developing antibodies. These can be detected in a blood sample with a celiac antibody test.
This gluten intolerance test uses a simple and easy to collect finger-prick sample to check four key markers: IgA & IgG antibodies for Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) as well as for Gliadin (AGA).
Did you know that certain genes are required for this gluten-sensitive enteropathy? You can check them with a celiac genetic test.

Celiac disease, also called gluten sensitive enteropathy or celiac sprue disease, is an immune response to gliadin in wheat, barley, rye, and triticale (which is a wheat-rye hybrid).
Although hereditary in nature, those afflicted produce antibodies that can be tested to confirm the disease.
The celiac antibody test checks IgG and IgA antibodies for DGP (Deamidated Gliadin Peptide) and Gliadin (anti-gliadin antibodies, AGA). Immunoglobulin A (IgA) measurement maybe sufficient but some people with celiac tend to be deficient, that's why immunoglobulin G (IgG) is also included for a complete picture.
Gliadin or AGA IgG, IgA antibodies are unique to certain conditions, e.g., itchy skin (dermatitis herpetiformis), autism, MS or schizophrenia in people with celiac. The testing procedure uses purified alpha, beta, gamma, and omega forms of gliadin.
This test does not include tTG antibodies, which may require a blood draw for further testing. The ACG guidelines suggest some evidence that DGP tests are more accurate than tTG in children under 24 months of age, although tTG tests are generally recommended.
It is recommended that one should be on a gluten diet while testing. Those on a gluten-free diet at the time of testing may show low serological values and less accurate results.
A complete clinical history may be required for interpretation of the results. Confirmation of positive celiac disease often requires a small intestine biopsy to conform damage to the intestinal lining from the body's auto-immune response.
The home test for celiac disease is to aid a qualified healthcare practitioner and is not intended to cure, treat, diagnose or prevent any disease or replace the medical advice of a professional.
Celiac has a strong genetic influence and is highly restricted to those carrying DQ2 or DQ8 genes. These can be confirmed with genetic testing for celiac disease.
Celiac allergy is an auto-immune disease with a genetic component that makes it cluster in families. A Mayo Clinic study found almost half of first-relatives were positive for celiac disease, regardless of any symptoms. The rate may be even higher for those with other auto-immune diseases, e.g., diabetes or thyroid problems.

It will briefly discuss what the results mean. You can download a sample report by clicking on 'Get Sample Report' on top of this page.
A: We do not have the capability to process the insurance claim. Insurance plans vary by individuals and may not pay for certain tests (e.g., genetic testing). We are happy to provide an invoice if you want to submit to your insurance.
You can use HSA (or FSA/MSA/HRA) accounts to pay for the tests since these are prescription tests (for further confirmation, please check the IRS publication#969). However, please ensure you are not going outside your specified max and min deductible limits. We do not have the capability to process the insurance claim. Insurance plans vary by individuals, therefore we can not guarantee your HSA payment will always be processed by your plan. Please talk to your insurance provider if you have any further concerns.
A: The celiac antibody test is carried out at a lab with long history of laboratory testing. We have partnered with CLIA-certified labs that are used by physicians across the US. These labs are regulated by the states, as well as Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Majority of the tests from these labs are FDA approved to ensure they meet the proper regulatory requirements. Additionally, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) requires inter-laboratory tests to ensure the ranges established by each lab do not drift or are not out of acceptable ranges. This is done by regularly testing reference samples between different labs. Finally, the labs test thousands of sample for different age groups and health conditions, and have well established reference data to compare your results against this large pool.
A: Unfortunately, no. As a lab test provider we can only test and report out data from your samples. We are not authorized to provide any medical recommendations. But we strongly encourage you to discuss the results with your doctor for next steps.
