Control of antibodies against gliadin IgG and IgA is no longer performed by Diagnostiki Athinon.

Newer reagents that detect IgG and IgA antibodies against degraded gliadin (DGP) are used to control gluten and celiac intolerance.

Please request the following examinations: Defective Gliadin (DGP), IgG and IgA Antibodies

Gliadin is part of the gluten protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Antibodies against gliadin, also known as anti-gliadin antibodies, arise in certain sensitive individuals exposed to gluten for a specific period of time. Detection of gliadin antibodies is one of the tests used to diagnose celiac disease and other gluten sensitivities. Antigliadin antibody search can be used to rule out celiac disease in patients with anemia or abdominal pain or in the context of investigating various allergies. Typically, both IgA and IgG anti-gliadin antibodies are measured.

The presence of other diseases of the gastrointestinal system, such as Crohn's disease, can sometimes give a false positive result.

 

 

Important Note

Laboratory test results are the most important parameter for the diagnosis and monitoring of all pathological conditions. 70%-80% of diagnostic decisions are based on laboratory tests. Correct interpretation of laboratory results allows a doctor to distinguish "healthy" from "diseased".

Laboratory test results should not be interpreted from the numerical result of a single analysis. Test results should be interpreted in relation to each individual case and family history, clinical findings and the results of other laboratory tests and information. Your personal physician should explain the importance of your test results.

At Diagnostiki Athinon we answer any questions you may have about the test you perform in our laboratory and we contact your doctor to get the best possible medical care.
