Celiac Disease

Celiac Disease is compared to a chameleon – it produces a number of symptoms and complications.

A patient may feel absolutely healthy, not suffering from any symptoms like diarrhoea, abdominal pain, digestion problems and nevertheless have celiac disease. Or they may suffer from difficulties that are not connected with a digestive tract disease at first sight, like for instance chronic fatigue, depression, headaches, infertility, anaemia (occurring frequently with celiac disease as a result of an iron absorption disorder) etc. These symptoms may also appear with many other diseases and therefore, doctors concentrate on finding the immediate cause.

Celiac disease is a lifelong disease characterized by a permanent autoimmune gluten intolerance which causes damage to the small intestine mucosa. The disease occurs with those genetically predisposed people who consume the gluten present in wheat, rye, barley, spelt, Kamut and oat. Dühring′s dermatitis herpetiformis is a dermal form of celiac disease.

The BIOHIT CELIAC QuickTest detects the presence of antibodies for tissue transglutaminase classed by IgA, IgG, IgMin capillary blood and the result is available 10 minutes later.

The BIOHIT CELIAC QuickTest serves to reveal celiac disease and to check compliance with a gluten-free diet.

In particular children who are not “supervised” by parents for the whole day and take their meals at a school canteen, it is important to monitor compliance to the diet when it is changed to gluten-free.

This test is intended for professional use and can only be carried out in selected medical facilities – pharmacies and consulting rooms.
