Gluten allergy testing

February 23, 2014 7:59 am

According to international guidelines, the Tissue Transglutaminase IgA test on a blood sample is most accurate for picking up gluten intolerance or Coeliac Disease. One needs to be on a gluten containing diet for 6 weeks to make this test accurate. A positive test result should be followed up with an small intestinal biopsy. http://www.nice.org.uk/nicemedia/live/12166/44356/44356.pdf
