GlysBy cheliac rapid test in capillary blood

Cheliac disease is a serious, lifelong, gastrointestinal disorder due to permanent intolerance to gluten (a complex mixture of storage proteins found in wheat, barley and rye) causing a list of clinical symptoms which can be avoided by only a gluten free diet. Cheliac home test is a simple rapid test for the detection of IgA antibodies to transglutaminase from fingertip blood. The level of these antibodies will decrease during gluten free diet so the test is not only useful as first check in case of symptoms but also to monitor the effectiveness of the diet.
