The test works by detecting IgA antibodies which are associated with gluten intolerance also known as coeliac disease. It is estimated that as many as 1% of the UK population could be gluten intolerant and who may suffer unnecessarily because they do not realise what causes their symptoms.

Gluten is found in wheat, barley and rye and for those with gluten intolerance eating foods containing these basic ingredients gives rise to unpleasant symptoms and discomfort. The symptoms are very similar to other gastro intestinal disorders and so to be able to confirm diagnosis or rule out gluten intolerance as a cause for the problems is important, especially given that that simple diet modifications may be all that is required to effect a cure.
