The cerascreen coeliac disease test is a sample submission kit for at-home use. The test is used to determine the presence of antibodies typical with coeliac disease in case of suspected coeliac disease (gluten intolerance) and to check for tissue transglutaminase (tTG IgG). Coeliac disease is a long-term autoimmune disorder that affects the small intestine.
The coeliac disease test includes free evaluation in the diagnostic laboratory and a detailed results report.

Please note that a relevant test result is only guaranteed if you have been eating foods containing gluten prior to testing (for approx. 2 weeks). A gluten-free diet can distort the result.
Coeliac disease is a lifelong medical condition. Components in gluten lead to chronic inflammation and damage of the lower intestinal mucosa. Recognising coeliac disease is important, because when the disease is present, eating food that contains gluten can cause secondary diseases.
Through advanced research and better diagnosis options, it is possible to recognise forms of coeliac disease with symptoms outside of the small intestine. One example of this is dermatitis herpetiformis, also known as Duhring’s disease, an extremely itchy skin condition accompanied by blistering.
