Gut Health Profile (Full Profile)
This blood test measures not only the genetic markers for ruling in or out Celiac disease, but also measures immune function through multiple antibodies to address gluten sensitivity, and other common sensitivities in those with compromised gut function or intestinal permeability.
Cell Science Systems Gut Health Profile offers answers for those concerned with Gluten Sensitivity/Celiac Disease who are presently consuming gluten AND includes genetic testing for those who may have taken gluten out but are interested in determining their likelihood testing is for those who suspect gluten is possibly a key player in preventing optimal health and wellness. For those with known Celiac disease, this test will also let you know if you’ve truly been 100% gluten-free.
Genetic: HLA typing for Celiac Disease- HLA- Dq2.5 and HLA-DQ8
Antibody: Total Serum IgA, tTTG (IgA and IgG), DGP Antibody (IgA and IgG), Anti-sacchoramyces Cerevisiae Antibody (ASCA)
Cellular: 15 Item Food Panel
-Gluten Containing: Gluten/Giadin, Barley, Malt, Spelt, Rye, & Wheat
-Non-Gluten Containing: Amaranth, Quinoa, Oat, Sorghum, Rice, Corn, Millet, Buckwheat, & Wild Rice
It is always a good idea to test for a potential reaction to gluten prior to taking it out for improving testing accuracy. This is a simple blood draw most primary care physicians are well aware of and can perform. Of course with the potential for a False/Negative test, it is still highly encouraged to eliminate Gluten- 100% while on the 30 Day program.
If you are interested in a more in depth panel addressing Celiac or gluten sensitivity through antibody detection and genetic markers, order a Gut Health Profile from HealthAroundYou.com or through a Functional Medicine practitioner near you. You can also add on an additional Food Sensitivity panel as well.
“Imagine gluten ingestion on a spectrum. At one end, you have people with celiac disease, who cannot tolerate one crumb of gluten in their diet. At the other end, you have the lucky people who can eat pizza, beer, pasta and cookies – and have no ill effects whatsoever. In the middle, there is a murky area of gluten reactions, including gluten sensitivity.”
