Celiac Panel Or Profile And Celiac Comprehensive
0

2 posts in this topic

Doc ordered my a Celiac Panel so I went to the hospital today to get my testing done. When I got there the ladies drawing my blood seemed to confused as to run the Celiac Profile Test or The Celiac Comprehensive. They called the doctor in the hospital and he told them the celiac profile test is the same thing as the celiac panel and told them not to run the comprehensive. So what exactly is the comprehensive?

Probably depends on the lab. The Quest Diagnostics website says their comprehensive celiac panel is a "cascading" panel, meaning if the first element they test for is negative, they don't test the next one (for example, the ttg IgA tests first...if negative, they don't add any of the others).

If it's LabCorp, their comprehensive panel does not cascade and includes deamidated gliadin antibodies, anti-endomysial antibodies, Ttg, and total IgA.
