(HLA) Human Leukocyte Antigens test for Celiac disease

At the molecular level, celiac disease is induced by an immune reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Celiac disease has a strong hereditary component.

The HLA test for celiac disease is a test that assesses, through a blood sample, an individual’s genetic predisposition to develop the disease.
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) is used to confirm or exclude the possibility of celiac disease.

The DNA test allows effectively to rule out (99%) the disease if no HLA-DQ2/DQ8 risk types are detected. This allows for avoiding the disease and all the consequences associated with it. If the result is negative, it is unlikely that you will develop the disease. If the result is positive you can take all the necessary precautions to ensure that the disease does not develop.
