If you have concerns that you may be coeliac, have a family history of coeliac's disease or are experiencing negative reactions to gluten, it is wise to have a Coeliac Test prior to going gluten free.
This test is the standard medical assessment of Coeliac's disease and will show a positive result in about 98% of coeliac patients who are still consuming gluten.
- Please note that a positive result is not diagnostic for Coeliac's disease but does indicate a need to undertake the steps for formal diagnosis. A formal diagnosis of Coeliac's disease is a small bowel biopsy through endoscopy via a gastroenterologist.
- For more information about Coeliac's disease and how to ensure your test results are accurate see our article here.
This coeliac serology test includes:
- Transglutaminase IgA
- Deamidated Gliadin Antibodies
***You must be consuming gluten daily prior to testing in order to see accurate results (false negatives occur for those on a gluten free diet).
