Gluten Testing in Stool and Saliva
We offer two stool tests to identify a gluten intolernace. One includes transglutimase antibodies and one does not. Transglutimase ab identifies if gluten may be contributing to an auto immune reaction.
We also offer a saliva test for gluten intolerance. However, the stool test is 100% reliable. If you chose to run the saliva test and it is positive then it is accuate and your body is making antibodies towards gluten. But if the saliva test is negative then we suggest double checking with the stool test.
Stool test results take 3 1/2 weeks from the time our lab receives the sample. Results are emailed. Saliva test results take 2 weeks and results are emailed.
