Gluten is a protein most commonly found in wheat and other related grains, such as barley and rye. Adding texture and a characteristic chewiness to baked goods, this ingredient is used in a wide variety of other foods as a thickener and binder, flavor enhancer, and protein supplement.
This blood test determines whether you have a food allergy to gluten. It measures the fast reacting (IgE mediated) response to gluten. This is not a test for Celiac Disease nor does it test for sensitivity to gluten (IgG mediated). If you are looking for a screening panel that will help you and your doctor evaluate your risk for Celiac Disease please look at Life Extensions panel (LC334971) which tests for antibodies associated with this autoimmune disorder.
Life Extension also offers slow-reacting food sensitivity testing for gluten in the Food Safe Allergy Test (LCM73001). Life Extension’s Food Safe Allergy test measures antibodies called IgG (subclass4). This type of antibody reacts with certain foods and may cause such delayed symptoms as chronic headaches, skin changes, heartburn, and indigestion. The food sensitivity results you will receive provide important information about your immune system and whether it is in conflict with various components of your diet.
Fasting is not required. Take all medications as prescribed.
