Gluten is in wheat, barley and rye so you'll find it in bread, pasta, cakes and even beer. About 1-in-100 of us have coeliac disease, where an autoimmune reaction to gluten in our diet causes gut inflammation and symptoms. Common symptoms of coeliac are:
You can also have these symptoms after eating gluten without having coeliac disease. This is called non-coeliac gluten sensitivity and it affects about 1-in-20 of us. The main way to tell the difference between coeliac disease and non-coeliac gluten sensitivity is to take a coeliac disease test.
Our Coeliac Disease Gluten Sensitivity Test is a simple finger-prick blood test for tissue transglutaminase IgA antibodies. This test is recommended by the NHS and raised levels make it likely you have coeliac disease. If the test result is negative, but you still get symptoms when eating gluten, then you may have non-coeliac gluten sensitivity.
Some people don't make IgA-type antibodies at all. Our test can pick this up and, if we find this is the case for you, we'll automatically test for the other antibody that's raised in coeliac disease, deamidated gliadin peptide IgG. Check out our great article to find out more about testing for coeliac disease.
Please note that you need to have gluten in your diet in the 6 weeks before testing for this test to be accurate.
Coeliac disease affects 1% of the population and most people don't know they have it. It causes indigestion, stomach pain, diarrhoea and weight loss. We'll test for tissue transglutaminase IgA antibodies first but if you happen not to make this type of antibody, we'll go on and check the other type of coeliac disease marker, deamidated gliadin peptide IgG.
Collect your sample at home or visit a clinic.

Please get in touch if you have any other questions about our tests.
The test for coeliac disease will not be accurate if you do not have gluten in your diet. Make sure your diet contains wheat, barley or rye in the 6 weeks before testing for accurate results.
This blood test checks for the presence of antibodies that are associated with coeliac disease. If you have gut symptoms and a positive coeliac antibody test then you may have coeliac disease. If you have a negative test result but still get gut symptoms when you eat foods containing gluten then you may have a condition called non-coeliac gluten sensitivity.
We do not recommend using this test panel if you:
If you already know you have coeliac disease then this test may not be useful.
