Gluten Intolerance Test

49,00 £

GetTested’s Gluten Intolerance Test measures antibodies (IgG) to transglutaminase for gluten intolerance (celiac disease). There are several different tests to measure gluten intolerance today, including IgA antibodies to transglutaminase. IgG antibodies can reveal a sensitivity that does not only cover the absolute cases of celiac disease, ie. those who are so-called gluten-sensitive but who do not necessarily get results on the traditional tests. This means that a person can test negative for an IgA transglutaminase test, but get a positive result on IgG transglutaminase.

About the test

The test is a so-called capillary blood sample, which means that you need to take a small stick in your finger and squeeze out some blood that you collect in a test tube. The sample is sent to our lab for analysis and your test result comes digitally when the lab has analyzed your sample.

Who is recommended to take the test?

If you suspect a possible gluten hypersensitivity, it may be a good idea to test yourself for this so that you know if you need to exclude gluten or not in your diet. It is important to bear in mind that there is a difference between our Gluten intolerance test, Food intolerance test and Allergy test. If you choose to carry out all these three tests, you can, for example, get a positive result on wheat for allergies or food intolerance, but be told that you are not gluten intolerant. If you get the answer that you are not gluten intolerant, you can thus still be sensitive to wheat as there are different types of diseases and reactions, as well as different things in wheat that you react to. For those of you who experience many different problems or symptoms, we recommend that you combine the gluten intolerance test with the Allergy test or Food intolerance test 80 items that also measures a milder form of gluten sensitivity.

Gluten-free diet or wheat-free diet?

A person who is gluten intolerant can eat gluten-free products, while a person who reacts to wheat should exclude all products that contain wheat. Gluten-free products may contain parts of wheat that a gluten intolerant person can tolerate, but someone suffering from wheat allergy would not be able to tolerate. A lab test makes sure you don’t exclude any food you are not hypersensitive to.

Common symptoms of gluten intolerance / celiac disease:

  • Skin problems
  • Diarrhea
  • Difficulty gaining weight
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Flatulence
  • Nausea
