Celiac Disease Antibody Test
Help determine if your discomfort from consuming gluten is caused by celiac disease.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder caused by an immune response to gluten consumption that can lead to gastrointestinal (GI) discomfort, loose stools, weight loss, and other symptoms. If you are seeking guidance and answers because you think you may have the disease, then this screening test is for you. Our Celiac Disease Antibody Test is the first step in determining whether you may have celiac disease, providing the answers you need to take control of your health from the lab that doctors trust most.
This screening test detects and measures antibodies your body may produce as an immune response after you consume gluten, if you have celiac disease.
What Does This Test Measure?
This test measures your total immunoglobulin A (IgA) and IgA antibodies to tTG (tissue transglutaminase). If your total IgA levels are low or deficient, a second test is conducted to examine levels of IgG antibodies to tTG (tissue transglutaminase) and IgG antibodies to DGP (deamidated gliadin peptide).
This test is not intended for patients already on a gluten-free diet.
You should see your healthcare provider for evaluation before considering this test if you have any concerning symptoms such as blood in your stool, fever, unusual weight loss, excessive diarrhea, or abdominal pain.
