Endomysial antibody, IgA; tissue transglutaminase (tTG), IgA; total IgA; reflex to tissue transglutaminase (tTG), IgG
Reflex testing for tissue transglutaminase (tTG) IgG antibodies is performed if total IgA is decreased.
3 - 6 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
1.75 mL (Note: This volume does not allow for repeat testing.)
Red-top tube or gel-barrier tube
Hemolysis; lipemia; gross bacterial contamination
Aid in the diagnosis of gluten-sensitive enteropathies
Enzyme immunoassay (EIA); indirect immunofluorescence
Celiac disease is a gluten enteropathy occurring in both children and adults. The disease is probably underdiagnosed in that it may affect as much as 1% of the population in the US. The condition is characterized by a sensitivity to gluten (found in wheat, barley, and rye) that causes inflammation and atrophy of the villi of the small intestine, malabsorption, etc. This sensitivity to gluten may also be seen in dermatitis herpetiformis. Strict avoidance of gluten in the diet will control disease activity, and antibodies to serum markers will disappear with time.
