Brief Description: The Celiac Disease Screening Lab Test is a panel of blood tests designed to diagnose or screen for Celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder characterized by an abnormal immune response to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. This panel includes the measurement of specific antibodies and immunoglobulins to assess the presence of Celiac disease markers.

Collection Method: Blood Draw

Specimen Type: Serum

Test Preparation: No preparation required

When and Why the Celiac Disease Screening Lab Test May Be Ordered

Timing of the Test: The Celiac Disease Screening Lab Test may be ordered when healthcare providers suspect Celiac disease based on clinical symptoms or risk factors.

Reasons for Ordering the Test:

  1. Symptoms of Celiac Disease: Individuals with symptoms suggestive of Celiac disease may undergo this screening. Common symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue, skin rashes, and digestive discomfort.

  2. Family History: People with a family history of Celiac disease are at a higher risk and may be screened to detect the condition early.

  3. Monitoring Celiac Disease Treatment: For individuals already diagnosed with Celiac disease, this test may be used to monitor their response to a gluten-free diet and assess antibody levels.

What the Celiac Disease Screening Lab Test Checks For

The Celiac Disease Screening Lab Test assesses the following markers:

  1. Gliadin (Deamidated Peptide) Antibody (IgG): This measures the presence of antibodies (IgG) directed against deamidated gliadin peptides. Elevated levels indicate an immune response to gluten.

  2. Immunoglobulin A (IgA): IgA is a type of antibody. This test helps determine if the patient has adequate IgA levels, as Celiac disease can sometimes be associated with IgA deficiency.

  3. Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Antibody (IgA): Elevated levels of tTG antibodies (IgA) are a key marker of Celiac disease. These antibodies are produced in response to tissue damage caused by gluten ingestion.

How Health Care Providers Use the Results of the Celiac Disease Screening Lab Test

Healthcare providers use the results of the Celiac Disease Screening Lab Test to:

  1. Diagnose Celiac Disease: Elevated levels of specific antibodies, particularly tTG antibodies (IgA), in conjunction with clinical symptoms, can confirm a diagnosis of Celiac disease.

  2. Assess Response to a Gluten-Free Diet: For individuals diagnosed with Celiac disease, repeated testing may be used to monitor the effectiveness of a gluten-free diet. A decrease in antibody levels over time indicates improved control of the disease.

  3. Identify Potential Complications: Timely diagnosis and management of Celiac disease are essential to prevent complications such as malnutrition, osteoporosis, and other autoimmune conditions associated with untreated Celiac disease.

  4. Rule Out Celiac Disease: In some cases, negative results may help rule out Celiac disease as the cause of symptoms, allowing healthcare providers to explore other potential diagnoses.

In summary, the Celiac Disease Screening Lab Test is a valuable tool for diagnosing Celiac disease and monitoring its management. It detects specific antibodies and immunoglobulins related to Celiac disease, aiding in the early identification and treatment of this autoimmune condition.

We advise having your results reviewed by a licensed medical healthcare professional for proper interpretation of your results.
