Celiac Disease

Celiac disease (CD), or gluten sensitive enteropathy, is a nonallergic, immune-mediated sensitivity (in genetically susceptible individuals) to gluten or related proteins. While biopsy is the gold standard for CD diagnosis, initial testing typically includes assessing serum IgA level and then proceeding with the appropriate tissue transglutaminase (tTG) antibody test (IgA or IgG, depending on whether or not the patient is IgA deficient).
