Description: Celiac disease is characterized by the presence of Transglutaminase, Gliadin, and Reticulin Antibodies. Such patients display a hypersensitivity to gluten (wheat) in their diet. The antibody is undetectable when patients with hypersensitivity are placed on gluten-free diets. Antibody IgA is more specific and IgG is more sensitive to Celiac disease.

Analytes Reported:
Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Antibodies (IgG, IgA)
Gliadin (Deamidated Peptide) Antibody (IgG, IgA)
IgA (Immunoglobulin A)
