Hi Claire:

Our new and improved finger-stick screening for Celiac Disease, known as the cdSCAN, was announced on November 1, 2005. It screens IgA, IgG and IgM against human Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) and IgA against gliadin. It is also a rapid test, which means the specimen is not sent to our facility for analysis - you have the results available to you in about 10 minutes from when you first collect your specimen.

Our original cdSCAN, which was introduced back in 2002, only screened IgA against human Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) and required that the specimen was sent to our facility for analysis.

You can learn more about our latest finger-stick screening for celiac disease at www.yorkallergyusa.com or by viewing www.yorkallergyusa.com/cdscan.pdf.

Sincerely,

John Kernohan, Director

York Nutritional Laboratories

This sounds fantastic. I went to the website, but I didn't see a cost associated with it. Since it doesn't need to be analyzed by a lab, I assume it won't be that costly. Does anyone know?

I just called thier 1-800 number, and got a real live person. That makes me feel a bit better about ordering. This just has the "too good to be true" sound to it, but I am tempted to try it anyways.

Yes.

I did their full food panel finger prick test.

I may now use this stick test to keep track of my antibodies, between doc visits.

I did their stool test and their genetic test (cheek swab).

I may now use this stick test to keep track of my antibodies, between doc visits.

You may want to just keep your doc appt, and your money ;-)

Well they said 2-5days to ship, then I would say prbly 2-4days to reach me( USPS from Florida). so that could be alot sooner then I could reach the doc, adn I am not sure I can get insurance to cover the re-test.

"THe kit can be utilized in either the comfort of one's own home or at a doctor's office, and the results are available in approximately 10 minutes.

cdScan is able to analyze a tiny sample of whole blood, serum or plasma for IgA/IgG/IgM antibodies against human Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) and IgA antibodies against gliadin.

Sorry...I don't know where my mind was this afternoon when I was writing to you...not only did I confuse York and Enterolab, but I totally forgot that this test gives results in 10 mins!

About a 're-test'....I'm not sure what you mean...I guess you mean that you are worried that IF you test positive, that your insurance won't allow you to re-test in 6 months time (which is the normal protocol)...

If that is the case, you should use your insurance for your initial testing, and then, if the insurance won't cover re-testing in 6 months (which it should), you can order this then, since it's best to not pay for a test if you can get it via your doc/insurance.

BUT...there are some people who do NOT want their health insurers to know that they have celiac disease...I guess because it can effect qualifying for future insurance, etc...

Anyway...SORRY, again, for my ADD-goofs!

RE: The Retest.

I tested once, and got a negative result, but I was mostly gluten-free at the time, and all that jaz. After getting the neg result, I add some gluen in my diet agian (occasional pizza, roll, etc) and each time got sick, tested for food alergies all neg etc blah blah blah, so doing a glutnen challenge all and all that blah blah blah.

:D

But my doc on maternity leave till the 21st, and I figure this way when she comes back I will either have eliminated or confirmed celiac disease.
