Assess underlying wheat/gluten-related disorders in CTD.
Includes Vibrant Connective Tissue Disorders and Wheat Zoomer for the assessment of underlying wheat/gluten-related disorders in CTD.
How To Prepare For This Lab:
Fasting is not required for the Inflammation test, and there are no diet or dietary supplement restrictions before testing. If you are taking steroids, immunosuppressive medications, biologic agents, or other immunmodulating medications, you may not get an accurate result of your antibody levels on the Inflammation test. If you are taking any of these medications you may get falsely lower or falsely higher antibody results.
For this reason, to ensure the most accurate results, your ordering provider may recommend testing 14-30 days after discontinuing these medications, or they may recommend testing Total Immunoglobulins (Total IgE, Total IgM, Total IgA, and Total IgG) before testing specific antibodies on the Wheat Zoomer and Connective Tissue Disorders tests.
Consult with your ordering provider regarding whether to continue or discontinue any dietary supplements or medications before your test, or whether to test Total Immunoglobulins before the Inflammation test.
Blood Sample Required.
