This test measures 4 key biomarkers related to celiac disease monitoring

We utilize the same screening biomarkers to track your progression so you can ensure you're heading towards healing. This includes the screening gold standard — the highly sensitive Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Antibody, or tTG-IgA biomarker. For an even more comprehensive view of your results, we also screen for three additional biomarkers: tTG-lgG, DGP-IgG and DGP-IgA¹,².

Common symptoms related to celiac disease to watch for:

As you begin to adopt a gluten-free diet in response to celiac disease, you may continue to experience digestive problems and related symptoms that should be closely monitored. The following symptoms are indicators that you should continue to test and evolve your treatment³:

Stomach cramps

Weight loss

Digestion issues

Regular bloating

*If you are experiencing heart attack symptoms, please see a doctor immediately.

3.6 Million

Over 1.1% of Americans are currently affected by celiac disease¹

80%

Of those who are affected are currently undiagnosed¹⁻²

What is celiac disease?

Celiac disease is one of the most under diagnosed diseases in the world, and yet it affects almost 3 million Americans. It is a condition where the absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by a substance called gluten, which is commonly found in wheat, rye, barley, and many other popular food items. As a result, this damage causes an inability of the body to absorb nutrients which are necessary for a healthy body.

Who is the most at risk?

As a genetic disease, celiac disease can be inherited; those with family members who have celiac disease are at higher risk. Someone suffering from autoimmune disease, such as thyroid disease or type 1 diabetes, is also at higher risk for celiac disease — as are patients with preexisting genetic disorders, such as Down Syndrome or Turner Syndrome¹⁰.

What’s the benefit of early testing?

It takes the average American over 3 years from recognizing symptoms to be diagnosed with celiac disease¹¹. The best way to fight this disease is through early detection, allowing a patient to adjust their lifestyle habits. The earlier the diagnosis, the earlier a patient can improve their quality of life by reducing unnecessary pain and suffering.

Celiac Disease Monitoring Test FAQ's

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 plans¹².

Who should take this test?

This test is ideal for those diagnosed with celiac disease who are currently on a gluten-free diet¹². 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 time¹².

Can my doctor use imaware™ results?

Yes. All of our tests are performed by CLIA-certified labs, the gold standard in lab testing quality regulation. Within your results report you will also find detailed information intended for your healthcare professional. They can use this information to interpret your test results clearly. To see an example of this, you can request a sample report at the top of this page.

How should I prepare for this test?

You do not need to fast. Ideally, you will have been diagnosed with celiac disease and be actively avoiding gluten or be on a gluten-free diet before taking this test¹².

Are imaware™ results as accurate as traditional lab test?

Yes. Not only are your results as accurate as traditional lab tests, but we’re actually the first at-home small volume blood testing company to have our data and methods peer-reviewed by the scientific and medical community — which helps validate our claims and our results reports.
