Celiac Disease Antibody Screen Blood Test
Test subject must be 18 years or older.
Are you sensitive to gluten?
The Forever Health Celiac Disease Antibody Screen is essential for anyone who suspects that gluten-containing grains like wheat, spelt, rye, and barley may be affecting his or her health.
Celiac disease is characterized by an immune-mediated reaction to gluten that causes inflammation in the small intestine and does not allow food to be properly absorbed.
Celiac disease is not a food allergy and is not the same as a wheat allergy. It is actually an autoimmune disease. The symptoms associated with it are varied and include diarrhea, abdominal pain, anemia, brain fog, and fatigue.
Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
Special Note: If you have not been eating foods containing gluten (for typically 3 to 6 months) before being tested, the results may be negative for celiac disease even if the disease is present. If your doctor suspects that you have celiac disease, and you already have been on a gluten-free diet for several months, he or she may suggest adding wheat/gluten back into your diet before testing.
NOTE: Blood tests are available only in the contiguous United States and Anchorage, AK. Not available in Maryland. Your blood test requisition options are a LabCorp requisition form or a blood draw kit. Certain restrictions apply for residents of MA, NY, NJ, RI, and PA. Customers in MA, NY, NJ, and RI will receive a blood draw kit, and an additional local blood draw fee may be incurred. PA customers must go to LabCorp for their blood draw.
