There is no direct name/term for a gluten allergy test, but it is associated with the celiac disease test. The celiac disease test looks for antibodies in the body that specifically arise from intolerance to gluten. Celiac disease is considered to be the most severe form of gluten allergy. It attacks the digestive system and possibly destroys its functioning. There is a wide range of symptoms – skin problems, gastric issues, mood swings, etc, resulting from celiac disease.

About Gluten Allergy Test

Why is the Gluten Allergy test done?

Gluten intolerance is a disease that can range from mild to extremely fatal. There are various symptoms of celiac disease that are seen when a person is suspected of gluten allergy. The symptoms include the following:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Constipation or smelly faeces
  • Fatigue and tiredness at all times
  • Allergic skin reactions
  • Anxiety problems
  • Weight loss out of the blue (unexplained)
  • Anaemia (due to iron deficiency in the body)
  • Auto-immune disorders
  • Pain in the joints or muscles
  • Numbness of limbs

Some people might have non-celiac gluten intolerance, the symptoms of which are:

  • Bloating
  • Stomach pain
  • Frequent headaches
  • Brain fog or foggy mind
What does the Gluten Allergy test measure?

Now, there are several tests that could be done to measure celiac intolerance in the body. So, the tests that the doctor recommends should be the ones done. Those tests include:

  • Simple blood test: This test checks for certain antibodies in higher quantities in the body if celiac disease is detected.
  • Biopsy: A tissue from the small intestine is used for a biopsy. Initially, a blood test will be done, and if there are any traces of celiac, a biopsy of the intestine will be done.
  • tTG-IgA test: Also known as the Tissue Transglutaminase IgA Antibody Test, it is used for the initial screening of celiac. The test is very sensitive and accurate in its detection of celiac in a person – the specific antibody level is measured to see if the person has celiac disease.
  • EMA test: This is done for people who are not sensitive enough to the antibody test mentioned earlier.
  • Total serum IgA test: This is done to verify if IgA deficiency might give false reports for the tTG-IgA test.
Risks/Side-effects of Gluten Allergy test

Generally, there is very less risk of any major symptoms inside the body. The person might feel slight pain (or some bruising) in the area where the needle has been pierced to take the blood. But these tend to disappear pretty quickly and not cause any major problems to the patient. In very rare cases, the patient might have blood collection under the skin or develop infection at the site from where the needle was pierced. But these are very rare occurrences and nothing major to worry about.

Interpreting the Gluten Allergy Test Results

The normal range varies depending on age, sex, and genetic history. If traces of immunoglobulin A (IgA) and immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies are found in the patient’s blood, that person is most likely suffering from celiac gluten sensitivity.

The absence of either of these antibodies in the blood could be an indication that the person is free from celiac disease.

According to the level of these antibodies inside the body, the doctor will recommend a particular lifestyle  followed for the patient. In most cases, the best way to defeat celiac disease is to stick to a strict no-gluten diet. Eating foods with no gluten helps your small intestine heal itself and stop any future inflammations. Foods made of wheat or wheat flour should be strictly avoided. The most common recommendation by doctors is to eat gluten-free oats. There are several food products that might have gluten, so one should be very careful!
