Short description

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease which is characterised by gluten intolerance. Gluten is a protein found in the seed of cereals such as wheat, barley, oats and rye. Symptoms can be atypical or absent both in children and adults, making diagnosis difficult. Symptoms of celiac disease can be weight loss, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain or stunted growth as well as infertility or recurrent miscarriages, although only marginally

70% of patients with celiac disease have not been diagnosed yet.

WHAT’S IT FOR?

The study allows the genetic predisposition to develop celiac disease to be determined or the disease to be excluded by analysing the HLA DQ2 and DQ8 haplotypes

WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF?

Complete Blood Sample

WHO’S IT FOR?

Asymptomatic patients due to clinical suspicion, especially in patients with inconclusive serological tests, with discrepancies between serology and endoscopy, or who suffer from diseases associated with celiac disease such as diabetes mellitus, thyroiditis and dermatitis herpetiformis

Symptomatic patients with normal serology and biopsies

Study of first-degree relatives (parents, siblings and children) of someone with celiac disease in order to understand genetic susceptibility.
