Testing – How Valuable Is It? 


VERY Valuable!


There are some types of Testing, which I believe to be very valuable – both in IBD disease management, and in IBD disease diagnosis, and I will go over those types of tests here, and will share with you which tests I’ve done  and why.


These tests are:


1) Genetic Risk, Carrier Risk, Drug Response Testing


2) Inflammation Panel


3) B12 Blood Status Panel Test



4) Chemistry Panel and CBC



5) Food Safe Allergy Test


6) Gluten Blood Test 



 7) Celiac Disease Antibody Screening Test




7)  Celiac Disease Antibody Screening Test

for those of you who may suspect Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is a lifelong digestive disorder affecting both children and adults. The disease is probably under-diagnosed in that it may affect as much as 1% of the population of the United States. This condition is characterized by an immune-mediated reaction to gluten that causes inflammation in the small intestine and does not allow food to be properly absorbed.

Celiac Disease is not a food allergy and is not the same as a wheat allergy… it is actually an autoimmune disease.

This screening test is for anyone who suspects that grains like wheat, spelt, rye and barely may be affecting their health. It is also suggested that the food safe allergy test be done as well since a person can react to wheat/grains in different ways. Celiac testing looks at the autoimmune mediated reaction component while the food safe test looks at a delay food sensitivity reaction. A person can react in both ways or just one or the other.

This screening panel includes:

  • Deamidated gliadin IgA

  • Tissue transglutaminase IgA

  • Serum IgA level
