There is no other test like it

  • PROMETHEUS Celiac PLUS is the only celiac test that combines serologic and genetic testing in one convenient test

  • Genetic testing detects genes specific to celiac disease (DQ2/DQ8). The absence of these genes may allow your physician to rule out celiac disease for life.

  • If you have the genes for celiac disease, PROMETHEUS Celiac PLUS includes an estimate of your risk, from extremely low to extremely high, according to your individual genetic makeup

  • Knowing your risk helps your doctor develop an individualized plan that may help you to manage or avoid celiac disease.

    To learn more about celiac disease and PROMETHEUS Celiac PLUS testing, talk to your doctor.

Celiac disease is often undiagnosed

Some of the symptoms of celiac disease are like those of many other digestive disorders. For this reason, people with celiac disease often go undiagnosed and untreated for many years. It's estimated that nearly 3 million Americans have the disease, but only about 100,000 are diagnosed. Celiac disease runs in families and occurs in both children and adults.
