About the Coeliac – Gluten Sensitivity Profile blood test
Coeliac disease or Gluten sensitivity can be screened for via a blood test that looks for specific antibodies.
Coeliac disease is a lifelong autoimmune disease that is caused by a reaction to gluten.
When people with coeliac disease eat foods containing gluten, their immune system attacks tissues in the body, damaging the gut lining. And can hinder the absorption of many nutrients, such as iron and vitamin B12.

Biomarker information for Coeliac – Gluten Sensitivity Profile blood test
What does the Coeliac – Gluten Sensitivity Profile blood test involve?
This blood test is just like a standard blood test.
You will be asked to uncover you left or right arm and suitable vein is found. A tourniquet will be placed and tightened around your upper arm allowing the veins to swell and a needle will be placed into your vein. A small quantity of blood is then drawn into tubes. Once the procedure is complete a small plaster will be placed onto the site which can be removed after a few hours.
