    WHAT IS COELIAC DISEASE?

    Coeliac disease is a lifelong, inherited disorder of the intestine which is quite common and poorly diagnosed and is caused by a sensitivity to gluten.

    Symptoms usually suffered include – bloating after eating bread and/or pasta, alternating bouts of diarrhoea and constipation, muscle wastage and fatigue. These symptoms are easily confused with symptoms of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

    WHAT IS THE SELFCHECK GLUTEN SENSITIVITY TEST?

    The SELFCheck Gluten Sensitivity Test detects specific IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies which is a proven biomarker for coeliac disease.

    It is easy to use, requiring a small, finger prick blood sample and gives a visual result within 15 minutes.

    A positive test result indicates you may have coeliac disease.

    Please note: starting a strict gluten free diet before taking this test can give false results.

    HOW DO I USE THIS TEST KIT?

    Please read instructions enclosed within the product on how to perform the test and get results.

    WHO IS THE TEST FOR?

    Anyone who thinks they may be intolerant to gluten or suffers from IBS. Coeliac disease also runs in families and so it can be helpful to test all members of the family.

    WHAT IF I GET A POSITIVE RESULT?

    Please contact your GP for further tests and a confirmed diagnosis. In the meantime, do not amend your diet to eliminate gluten rich foods as this can make diagnosis difficult.

    HOW LONG DO I NEED TO BE EATING GLUTEN TO GET A RELIABLE RESULT IF I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING A GLUTEN-FREE DIET?

    Most doctors advise you should be on a normal gluten-containing diet for at least 6 weeks before taking a test. This is because the antibody levels decrease to undetectable levels if you are on a gluten free diet.

    Even if your result is positive, do not go gluten-free until a diagnosis is confirmed with your doctor.
