Gliadin Antibody IgG Test

Gliadin Antibody IgG Test

also known as: Gliadin IgG, Gliadin IgG Antibody, Gliadin IgG Ab Gluten IgG Antibody Deamidated Gliadin IgG

A Gliadin Antibody test is an investigation for Antibody IgA, used by the doctors to aid in diagnosing celiac diseases. The test is performed for antibody deficiency. This test took two types of antibodies – IgA and IgG - that develop in an individual suffering from celiac diseases. It tends to decrease rapidly in response to treatment for celiac issues. A gliadin antibody blood test is advisable for the people who show symptoms of the celiac disease. The celiac disease is a genetically susceptible immune-mediated condition in the mucosa of the small intestine. A final diagnosis should be confirmed by a doctor and may require an intestinal biopsy.

AGA test normally requires fasting. For accurate results, the patient is given gluten-rich diet including pasta, bread, and other bakery food items preceding the test. The exposure to gluten allows forming Gliadin Antibody (IgA and IgG). Now everything should be kept free from gluten to experience inactivity of antibodies. Take notes prior and after the test results. The regular testing provides the best results with a gluten-free diet. On the test day, wear a short sleeve shirt, the test requires blood collection and testing. Also, inform your doctor of any allergy or medical condition or if you take any medicines.

• The uses of Gliadin Antibodies take serological tests to diagnose the sensitivity in celiac disease and help doctors to treat the condition accordingly.
• The test detects the presence of overall anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA) levels inside a body that attack the protein.
• This is a vigilant test. In patients with celiac disease or allergies, the Gliadin Antibody test gives proper condition as denoted. In addition, test looms 90% accuracy and potentially offers positive results after the definitive diagnostic test.
• This screening test can be used to find the need for biopsy in a patient.
• The test is required to diagnose Dermatitis Herpetiformis.

It is recommended to meet prior identification of potential gluten sensitivity to increase the flow of gluten level in the body. This will measure the level of Gliadin antibody and detect the celiac disease to monitor its treatment.
• The lab technician will tie the tourniquet around the upper arm and clean the skin over the vein with antiseptic.
• Insert a needle in the vein and blood is sucked into the vial.
• The sample is carried to the lab for ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay).
• The intensity of the color change represents the presence of gliadin antibodies in the blood.
