What will my results tell me?
These results can be used to monitor these celiac-specific biomarkers over time, as levels should decline with a strict gluten-free diet. Levels that do not change might suggest you need to be more strict with a gluten-free diet, or indicate that you need to follow up with a physician for other testing or treatment plans.
Who should take this test?
This test is ideal for those diagnosed with celiac disease who are currently on a gluten-free diet. It’s designed to monitor the gold standard celiac disease-related biomarkers over time to help those with the disease understand if a gluten-free diet is improving their health.
Who can order an imaware™ test?
This test is only for adults aged 18 and older.
What is the difference between the celiac disease screening and the celiac disease monitoring tests?
The celiac disease screening test is for those that are still eating gluten, designed to provide a scale of likelihood that someone has the disease. The celiac disease monitoring test, on the other hand, is for those already diagnosed with celiac disease who want to make sure their biomarker levels are declining into a normal range with a strict gluten-free diet. The monitoring test measures the effectiveness of a gluten-free diet based on your biomarkers trending down over a period of time.
