Gluten Blood Test - More Information
The gluten allergy test, sometimes known as a gluten IgE test, checks for gluten IgE antibodies in the blood.
Gluten is a class of proteins bound into a complex that is found in grains. In addition to being found in grains, gluten has a wide range of industrial uses and is found in many of the foods that we eat. Gluten is strong and elastic, enabling the binding of components of food and increasing its stability.
Unfortunately, dietary gluten can cause problems in humans. Gluten exposure has been associated to celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that can cause damage to the intestinal linings. Gluten can also cause immediate allergic reactions in sensitive people, characterized by an increase in IgE antibody levels as measured by this gluten blood test.
