The price of the test is 54 000 HUF.
If you wish to have the test performed at one of our lab points, please do not purchase from our webshop, but visit the lab point’s own website.
Each of the gluten-related pathological conditions is a combination of extremely complex symptoms that affect the entire body. Symptoms can occur at any age and can be very varied, not appearing in some patients and causing daily problems in others.
Several diseases are known in common knowledge as gluten sensitivity, but in reality, they are three separate diseases with similar symptoms. In all three cases, there are different factors behind the disease, the only thing they have in common is that gluten triggers the symptoms, hence the name gluten-dependent diseases and gluten-related diseases.
Diseases caused by gluten include celiac disease, allergies to gluten-containing grains (e.g. wheat flour), and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
In what cases is this laboratory package recommended?
In all cases where we experience symptoms associated with gluten-dependent diseases, a thorough medical examination as soon as possible is important. Self-diagnosis and a wrong choice of diet can even cause serious damage to our body, so a full laboratory test is recommended even for mild symptoms.
If there has already been celiac disease in the family, prevention should be a priority due to genetic accumulation. The most important thing is to make sure that the necessary diagnostics are carried out, in which Medicover’s latest laboratory test package, compiled specifically for the diagnosis of gluten-dependent diseases, offers help.
How do I prepare for the test?
Laboratory testing requires no preparation, having an empty stomach is not required for sampling.
However, it is important that you follow your usual diet before the test, do not go on a gluten-free diet, otherwise the test will not give real results.
When is the result expected?
On the 7th working day following the examination.
