The Gluten F79 IgE test is a laboratory test that measures the amount of specific IgE antibodies against gluten present in the blood. Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is a class of antibodies produced by the immune system, primarily in response to allergens.

  • Sample Type: Blood
  • Results: 1-6 days
  • Age: 18+

Gluten is a cluster of proteins found primarily in cereal grains like rye, barley, and wheat. Of all the cereal grains, wheat consists of 80-90% gluten and is the most consumed. The two major proteins in gluten are gliadin and glutenin, with gliadin causing the most adverse reactions in hypersensitive individuals. When flour combines with water, gluten forms into a stretchy, springy network of proteins with a glue-like consistency.

This Gluten Blood Test detects IgE antibodies that develop in individuals sensitive to foods or products containing gluten. The immune system typically combats viruses and bacteria that may cause harm from spreading throughout the body. However, consuming foods containing gluten may activate an adverse response in the immune system. During this response, the body will view gluten as harmful and produce IgE antibodies to combat these invaders. These antibodies may trigger the release of the histamine chemical that cause hay fever or asthma-like symptoms. For individuals with celiac disease (CD), the immune system may mistakenly attack the walls of the small intestine as if it contained a virus. As a result, it causes damage to the digestive tract and prevents the body from absorbing the nutrients it needs.

No special preparation required.
