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.

"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.

    • Swanson Chicken In A Can
      The original post from here is 8 years old and the product information is likely outdated.  I would contact manufacturer on any info over a year or so old, but even then things can change.
    • Anyone done commercial testing?
      Have you subscribed to gluten free watchdog? They have some great test results and info on what tests they do and why.  If you want specific items to be tested and will fund it, you may contact them to see if you can help the community as a whole.
    • Help understanding test results??
      I am a 20 year old female. I recently had some blood work done to test for celiac disease.  The ref. range for all of the following is 0 -- 14.9 U/mL: Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGA = <0.5 Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGG= <0.8 Deaminated Gliadin PEP IGA= 1.3 Deamninates Gliadin PEP IGG= 242.9  Yes I have a follow up appointment with a gastroenterologist because the last panel was high. I am just hoping that someone can explain the results in a way that is easier for me to understand. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
    • I got WELL!!
      manasota, When I first was diagnosed with Celaic disease I was beginning to have Thyroid problems.  But I began studying up fortifying myself with knowledge which led me to Chris Kresser's site where he has a free book on Thyroid disorders it might be worth downloading it and reading it (I have not) but read some of his blog posts. I think of it like one of my fellow blogger's I follow Susan Hughes Healthy by Nature quoting when she says "I find the human body to be pretty amazing. It is capable of healing itself when given the proper tools to do so. These “tools” include nutrients, thoughts, rest, among other things – all dependent, to a degree, on the unique needs of the individual. Many times proof of this incredible healing capacity of the body is backed only by anecdotal evidence, which, no matter how valid, lacks the respect that formal research supporting this notion would receive." With that in mind consider what I have learned on my journey is all I ask. I will share what has made me feel better. Chris Kresser (I don't remember why) says selenium first then Iodine for thyroid problems and a lot of these fatigue issues can be tied to your thyroid. Having said that my thyroid is better by that I mean I no longer need meds for my thyroid and my chronic fatigue is better. I find two or three brazil nuts a day will give you most of the selenium your thyrorid needs.  Find a Kelp supplement for a good source of Iodine or just start putting idoine (betadine) from the drug store on your legs each night until it stains you in the morning then you know your body has enough Iodine since it readily absorbed when it lingers on the skin for more than 12 hours you have enough iodine. For the Chronic Fatigue I can not over emphasize Magnesium CITRATE in divided doses 3 to 4 times (with each meal and at bed time).  Great book on the subject called "the Magnesium Miracle".  Make sure it is a 100% Citrate though or your body will have time absorbing it. Your energy will really perk up.  Muscle cramps will improve.  Restful dreams (if you can't remember when you last dreamed) will come vividly. Search for the posterboy on this site if you want to read all my posts and see my profile if you want to know what other vitamin's or minerals I have taken to help me "get well". Good luck on your journey.  Read the topic "Still Sick 1 year after diagnosis" for  a summary of other things I have done by the poster ryan7194. Provided here for easy reference **** This is not medical advice and should not be considered such. Results may vary. Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your medical regimen. 2 Timothy 2:7 and 2 Cor 1: 3,4 Posterboy,
    • Stomach sore from eating gluten free foods?
      I agree.  Since the cookie was gluten free, your body was reacting to something else.  I also think it's important to not self-diagnose/test because even if you feel better without gluten, you don't know if you are celiac or just have an intolerance to gluten and/or wheat. It's better to go through the testing.
