The DNA ConneXions® Gluten Sensitivity Test utilizes super floss to detect the presence or absence of the HLA tissue typing markers for DQ2 and DQ8 (actually the markers HLA-DQB1*02, HLA-DQA1*0501, HLA-DQB1*0302 exon2 and HLA-DQB1*0302 exon3).
The presence of any of these genetic markers is 95% predictive for gluten intolerance and/or sensitivity. The presence of both markers is 95% predictive for coeliac disease.
Our Gluten Sensitivity Test can help you discover health problems and take steps to improve your diet.
Oral cells allow us to determine if you have a genetic predisposition to gluten intolerance and/or Celiac Disease even before symptoms occur. The panel determines the presence or absence of four Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) genes which have an important role in the body’s immune response. This test utilizes the DNA ConneXions® Superfloss sampling method.
