The Celiac Panel at Upstate
Celiac disease is an immune reaction to eating
The majority of patients with CD make IgA antibodies. Studies have shown a very small number (approximately 3%) of CD patients are IgA deficient and they would then make IgG antibodies. For this reason, Serum IgA is included in the Celiac Panel. If the Serum IgA is less than the age-matched reference value, the Tissue Transglutaminase IgG Antibody (TTGG1) is reflexively ordered.
The Celiac Panel (CELP1) consists of the following:
- Serum IgA
ifless than the age-matched reference value, the TTGG1 will be ordered
- TTGA1 Tissue Transglutaminase IgA Antibody
- DGPA Deaminated
GliadenPeptide IgA Antibody
- DGPG Deaminated
GliadenPeptide IgG Antibody
Gliaden testing is no longer recommended since the DGP Antibodies are more specific and sensitive for
In children under the age of 2, Deaminated Gliadin Antibodies (IgA and IgG) may become positive before the TTGA1. Type I Diabetes is highly linked to Celiac Disease on a genetic level, and 5 to 10 percent of people with Type I Diabetes also have
