Rapid test to check/or the presence of anti-deamidated gliadin (anti-DGP) antibodies, lgA and IgG, in the blood, for celiac disease screening
Celiac Disease (CD), also known as “celiac sprue”, is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the small intestine, produced by the ingestion of dietary gluten products in susceptible people. It is a multifactorial disease, including genetic and environmental factors. Environmental trigger is represented by gluten while the genetic predisposition has been identified in the major histocompatibility complex region which cause the presence of specific antibodies against gluten and its components. Celiac disease is not a rare disorder like previously thought, with a global prevalence around 1%. The reason of its under recognition is mainly referable to the fact that about half of affected people do not have the classic gastrointestinal symptoms, but they present nonspecific manifestations of nutritional deficiency or have no symptoms at all.
CELIAC TEST is useful for anyone who wants to check for any gluten sensitivity, which must then be confirmed by a specialist.
