The cerascreen coeliac disease test is a sample submission kit to use at home. The test is used to determine the presence of antibodies typical to coeliac disease in case of suspected coeliac disease (gluten intolerance) and check for tissue transglutaminase (tTG IgG). Coeliac disease is an long-term autoimmune disorder that affects the small intestine.
The coeliac disease test includes free evaluation in the diagnostic laboratory and a very detailed results report.
Determine the presence of antibodies typical of coeliac disease against tissue transglutaminase (iTG-IgG)
- detailed results report
- free analysis in the specialist diagnostic laboratory
- pain-free and easy to perform
- only takes a few minutes
- no stress from a visit to the doctor
Please note that a relevant test result is only guaranteed in case you have eaten foods containing gluten prior (approx 2 weeks) to testing. 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.
