Gluten Sensitivity Screen Profile 5056
Identify individuals who may have gluten sensitivity but have no symptoms, atypical symptoms, or extra-intestinal manifestations.
NeuroScience, Inc. offers two profiles for gluten sensitivity and celiac testing
- Gluten Sensitivity Screen Profile #5056
- Endomysial Antibody IgA Profile #5099
The term gluten sensitivityâ€ has been used to refer to a variety of clinical complaints caused by ingestion of gluten. The most commonly known gluten sensitivity is Celiac disease or gluten sensitive enteropathy (GSE). GSE is an autoimmune disease of the small intestines whereby the ingestion of gluten results in inflammation and loss of villus structure in individuals with the genetic predisposition. A second type of gluten sensitivity is known as gluten sensitivity without enteropathy. This type of sensitivity also involves an inappropriate immune response to gluten but can occur in any individual. Gluten sensitivity without enteropathy is induced mainly by enhanced intestinal permeability due to infection, stress, or chemical injuries. In both types of gluten sensitivity, the immune system over-reacts to the presence of gluten resulting in the production of antibodies to both gliadin and tissue transglutaminase.
Gluten Sensitivity Screen
NeuroScience, Inc.'s serum Gluten Sensitivity Screen (5056) assesses total IgA and antibody levels to gliadin and tissue transglutaminase. Serum used for the Gluten Sensitivity Screen may also be used for the Gluten Autoimmunity Profile (5057).
The consumption of gluten may trigger gluten sensitivities with or without enteropathy. The presence of gluten sensitivity in general can be assessed through either saliva or serum. If cross-reactive antibodies are produced, damage may occur to other organ systems resulting in the presentation of a variety of clinical symptoms which are not typically associated with gastrointestinal disorders.
Gluten Sensitivity Markers (5056)
Gliadin A glycoprotein which plays a role in the formation of gluten and is present in wheat and other grains. Eighty percent of individuals with GSE are positive for gliadin antibodies. Antibodies produced against gliadin can also have extra-intestinal manifestations affecting vital organs and the nervous system.1,2
Immunoglobulin A (IgA) Antibody important in mucosal immunity. Imbalances in IgA have been associated with GSE.3
Transglutaminase (tTg) A tissue enzyme in the intestinal tract that is responsible for the conversion of glutamine to glutamic acid (glutamate). Antibodies to tTg are highly sensitive and specific for GSE. Recent findings have provided evidence that dysregul
This profile includes the most common antibody markers for celiac disease, gluten sensitive enteropathy disposition (GSE), and gluten sensitivity without disposition (GS). This test is suggested for patients suspected of having GS or GSE, a genetic disposition for GS or GSE, elevated Intestinal Barrier Assessment (#5090) IBA TOTAL SCORE(TM) results, elevated pro-infammatory cytokines (Profles #5075 and #5082), and/or elevated Immunoglobulin A levels (Immune Evaluation V (#3012)).
This profile includes the following tests:
- Gliadin IgG,Â IgA
- Transglutaminase IgG, IgA
- Immunoglobulin A
