Biocard Celiac Disease At Home Test Kit by 2GPharma Inc.


A simple at-home test for celiac disease

Finally a reliable, simple, affordable and very rapid test for the detection of celiac disease—and it can be done within the comfort of your own home!

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.

You must NOT be gluten-free for about 2 months prior to the test, or it will likely be false negative.

My blood test was negative, and I was later diagnosed celiac. Note the accuracy of the test is 93%, which is in actually quite low. Plus you can be celiac without having the antibodies in your bloodstream. Your gut has to be damaged to the point where the antibodies can then get into the blood stream. So use this test with the knowledge that a false negative is likely .

Thanks guys! Ill defintley ask about the full thyroid panel. I did antibodies for those thyroid ones a year ago do i have to get that again. Thanks Ennis for those recommandations I will resort back to my food diary!

To add to the good advice above.

He needs them to back you up, be supportive etc. On no account shoul...
