The GENESURE® test uses a cheek swab sample to detect the presence or absence of genetic markers for celiac disease. An estimated 40% of the population has the genetics necessary for development of celiac disease. There are two important genetic markers; the HLA DQ2 (including alpha and beta subunits) and HLA DQ8 genes. As genetics never change, this one time test provides a clear lifetime genetic profile. A negative GENESURE® test will rule out celiac disease for life. A positive GENESURE® test indicates a predisposition to develop the disease and ongoing diagnostic testing should be considered (IgA tTG blood screen).
GENESURE® results are NOT affected by diet (including a gluten free diet), medication or alcohol. GENESURE® can be done on adults or children of any age with the same degree of accuracy.
