Certain autoimmune disorders can cause the production of GAD autoantibodies which attack insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.

A glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) antibody test looks for a type of autoimmune antibody typically associated with diabetes. GAD is an enzyme that plays a role in nervous system function. Certain autoimmune disorders can cause the production of GAD autoantibodies which attack cells in the pancreas responsible for the production of insulin. The inability to properly produce insulin can lead to the development of diabetes. A GAD antibody test can help determine which type of diabetes a person has. In most cases, a person with type 1 diabetes will show elevated GAD antibody levels. A GAD antibody test is typically ordered to aid in diagnosing a person with diabetes and determining which type they have. It can also be used to monitor the treatment of diabetes.

You will receive a payment confirmation email, then an additional email confirming your appointment details (type of test, time and location of appointment, and QR code). You will need to present your QR code to the testing facility in order to check in.
