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

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.

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.

    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      I haven’t found any large scale studies on this, but only a handful of individual case reports suggesting that in rare cases giardia can temporarily mimic celiac (both the serology & villous atrophy) until it is treated.   I think this is a  complex matter as giardia effects patients differently (most are asymptomatic whilst others suffer from chronic symptoms including malabsorption) for reasons that may not be well understood. In my case - My GI agrees that Giardia can directly cause villous atrophy that cannot be distinguished from Celiac.  As the healing of the villi can be a slow process, I will schedule a repeat endoscopy 6-12 months after my giardia was treated.   Ttg antibodies can also take 6-12+months to completely normalise, especially if the starting levels are high. 6 months would have elapsed at the end of this month, so will schedule a repeat test, hoping for a normal Ttg result to prove the theory.   I have decided to remain on a normal gluten diet until it can be proven that I’m a celiac and not just suffering from a giardia infection.  I have reason to be optimistic as my Gliadin IgA levels are negative (not iga deficient) and also given the sharp decrease in ttg levels 4 weeks after giardia was treated.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      It took all of 3 years before ALL of my symptoms resolved and it was the neuro ones that were the last to go.  If you have been careful about your diet, then you may not be getting glutened as much as you think.  It sounds like you have been careful because you are questioning things you should question to get clarification on.  I am sure if you were doubtful, you would refrain from eating something until you know for sure. Neuro symptoms can last for much longer than other symptoms.  Please be patient because my last neuro symptom was the one that took 3 years.  Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies?  The B vitamins are important for neuro health, especially B12.
    • Week late aftershock!?
      I had a similar problem, I was glutened after a meal out at the beginning of April and am still experiencing problems, obviously not as bad now, but bad enough.  I have also become intolerant to  xanthan gum since, which cuts down the foods I can eat even more. I'm already intolerant to dairy, soya, and a whole lot of other stuff.  Cyclinglady is right about the auto-immune disorders, and I've noticed I have similar problems to her.  I too, eat easy to digest foods until the glutening symptoms pass. The sinus infection might also be a reaction to the glutening, it effects people in different ways.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks, I'll check out the information in the link. Do you remember how long you were on a gluten-free diet before your vertigo disappeared? I have been on the diet for 2 years, but I might be glutened from time to time since I am not an expert food label reader. My dizziness still persists.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
