When to collect your sample
The sample must be collected using the home collection kit* provided in the morning on a Monday - Thursday and returned on the same day.
This sample must be collected following at least 6 weeks of a diet containing gluten.
1% of the world population suffers from Coeliac infection. Coeliac infection is an autoimmune infection in which the immune system believes that gluten is a threat.
There are 300 symptoms of Coeliac infection however the symptoms include:
unexplained iron-deficiency anemia
bone or joint pain
osteoporosis or osteopenia (bone loss)
liver and biliary tract disorders
depression or anxiety
peripheral neuropathy (tingling and/or numbness or pain in the hands and feet)
seizures and migraines
missed menstrual periods
infertility or recurrent miscarriage
canker sores inside the mouth
dermatitis herpetiformis (itchy skin rash)
Who should be tested
You should be tested for Coeliac disease if you experience unpleasant symptoms after eating products that contain wheat, rye, barley, and oats.
You should consider testing if:
You are experiencing digestive discomfort for over two weeks
You have had diarrhoea for over two weeks
You have thyroid issues
You have type 1 diabetes
You have Turner syndrome
You suffer from rheumatoid arthritis
You suffer from colitis (inflammation of the inner lining of the bowel)
Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG)
Tissue Transglutaminase is an enzyme that repairs damage in the body. Low levels of transglutaminase tissue in the blood are indicative of Coeliac infection. The harmful antibodies in their place are known as anti-tissue transglutaminase.
Endomysial Antibodies (EMA)
When the body perceives that it is under attack, it produces endomysial antibodies (EMA). These auto-antibodies cause intestinal swelling and prevent nutrient absorption into the blood. High levels of endomysial antibodies indicate that you have Coeliac infection.
