The Future Of Celiac Testing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So, I've been thinking, what is the chance that they will ever come up with a celiac test that doesn't require any gluten exposure at all? Is that absolutely impossible?

 

It seems like the current tests essentially measure how much damage gluten does to you.

 

How would the mechanism of such a test even work, if they were able to come up with one?

This research seems to be at the cutting edge: http://www.healthline.com/health-news/food-new-blood-test-for-celiac-disease-011714 although it still depends on 3 days of exposure. just wish it was available now!

I was going to mention that, too!

I don't think there will be an advance anytimes soon. I thnk the 3 day exposure testing is about as good as it is going to get. The only way to do it without exposure would be if you can find a different gene that is much more specific to celiac disease than the current ones. Otherwise it is always going require exposure to cause an immune response.
