The NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Immunology department provides the Clinical Immunology Service and the Diagnostic Laboratory Service.
Our coeliac disease testing strategy has changed. ESPGHAN guidelines state that a total IgA level of ≥0.2 g/L is sufficient for reliable IgA tTG serology provided the patient is eating gluten regularly. All negative IgA tTG results with very low responses will have total IgA quantified. Samples with total IgA ≤0.4 g/L will be tested for IgG endomysial antibodies. However please note that this is a less sensitive test for coeliac disease.
