Biocard Celiac Disease At Home Test Kit by 2GPharma Inc.
After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002. The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have. It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.
A simple at-home test for celiac disease
The new Biocard Celiac Test from 2GPharma Inc. can be used as an aid in the diagnosis of celiac disease, although confirmation can only be done by a medical doctor.
The Biocard Celiac Test is a home test for the detection of celiac disease-associated IgA antibodies to transglutaminase from a fingertip blood sample that can be obtained hygienically via a small, sterile lancet that is contained within the Biocard Celiac Test kit.
Test results can be read within 10 minutes. The sampling is practically painless and all materials required for the test are included along with fool proof step by step instructions on how to perform the test (although it is important to read the instructions fully before you use the kit). The results are easy to read and have a 93% accuracy.
I decided to use the Biocard Celiac Test on my husband and the entire procedure took less than 2 minutes and the results were received within 10 minutes. Luckily, he did not carry the antibodies for celiac disease at this time.
