What To Do With Your Results

If your report says you have celiac disease risk variants

  • Consider sharing the result with a healthcare professional.
  • Consider sharing your results with relatives. They may also have these variants. Keep in mind that some people may not want to know information about genetic health risks.

If your report says you have non-celiac genetics (NCG)

  • This means no celiac risk variants were detected in your DNA. There is less than 1% chance of developing celiac disease. However, you should consult with your healthcare provider if you have questions or are experiencing symptoms.

Concerned about your risk?

  • If you have other risk factors celiac disease, you should discuss the condition with a doctor.

Genetic Health Risk reports are intended to provide you with genetic information to inform conversations with a healthcare professional. These reports should not be used to make medical decisions. Always consult with a healthcare professional before taking any medical action.

Genetic Counseling

We encourage you to consult with a genetic counselor.

A genetic counselor is a healthcare provider with special training in genetic conditions like celiac disease which run in families. A genetics counselor will be able to answer your questions and help you and your family make informed diet and lifestyle choices. We recommend you consult with a counselor before and after testing so you can better understand risks and benefits of genetic testing. Your genetics counselor can also help you understand your test results.

The GlutenID test uses qualitative genotyping to detect clinically relevant variants in the genomic DNA of adults from buccal (cheek) cells for the purpose of reporting and interpreting celiac genetic health risk (GHR). This test is not intended to diagnose celiac disease. Your ethnicity may affect the relevance of the report and how your celiac genetic health risk results are interpreted. The variants included in this report are supported by Level 1 (the highest) level of evidence. The celiac risk variants are most common in people of northern European descent. The celiac GHR report describes if a person has variants associated with a higher risk of developing celiac disease, but does not describe a person’s overall risk of developing the disease. The test is not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health, or to be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication, how much of a medication you should take, or determine any treatment. Warnings & Limitations: This report does not include variants in other genes linked to celiac disease and the absence of variants included in this report does not rule out the presence of other genetic variants that may impact celiac risk. The GlutenID test is not a substitute for visits to a healthcare professional for recommended screenings or appropriate follow-up. Results should be confirmed in a clinical setting before taking any medical action.
