Alpha-Beta Gliadin IgG is a type of antibody that is produced by the immune system in response to gliadin, a protein found in gluten. Gliadin is commonly found in wheat, barley, and rye and is known to trigger an immune response in individuals with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
When the immune system detects gliadin in the body, it produces antibodies, including Alpha-Beta Gliadin IgG, to target and neutralize it. Elevated levels of Alpha-Beta Gliadin IgG antibodies in the blood can indicate the presence of an immune response to gliadin and may suggest the presence of celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
Alpha-Beta Gliadin IgG testing is often used as part of a comprehensive evaluation for gluten-related disorders, although it is not a definitive diagnostic test on its own. A healthcare professional can help interpret the results of Alpha-Beta Gliadin IgG testing and determine if further evaluation or treatment is needed.
An elevated level of Alpha-Beta Gliadin IgG antibodies in your body may indicate that you have an immune response to gliadin, a protein found in gluten. This immune response can occur in people with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks the small intestine in response to gluten consumption.
However, elevated levels of Alpha-Beta Gliadin IgG antibodies can also be found in people without celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, and therefore it is not a definitive diagnostic test. Other tests, such as genetic testing, intestinal biopsy, or further antibody testing may be needed to confirm the diagnosis.
It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to interpret your test results and determine the appropriate next steps for your health.
