Fusion Diagnostics Gastrointestinal (GI) Distress Profile

The Gastrointestinal Distress Profile is a simple tool to aid in the management of prolonged gastrointestinal distress symptoms. The test results can help confirm the presence or absence of an allergic or autoimmune condition. They also help guide treatment and ensure a referral to the appropriate specialist.

Food Sensitization
IgE-mediated reactions to food can produce a broad array of GI symptoms; these can range from moderate to severe. Understanding the potential role a reaction to food plays in GI distress is an important part of the disease management process.

Celiac Disease
Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) and Deamidated Gliadin Peptides (Gliadin) / Gliadin antibodies are excellent markers for celiac disease. A positive EliA tTG result in combination with Gliadin DP / Gliadin helps to support a clinical diagnosis of celiac disease.
