Celiac screening + monitoring kits: imaware health

*imaware health {at-home celiac screening and monitoring kits} sponsored this post; my opinions are my own*

Have you have either fought your doctor for a Celiac test, had to wait endless weeks/months for an appointment to get your answers, or even been diagnosed Celiac but simply wanted to ensure your body is appropriately responding to the gluten free diet?

I imagine the answer is a resounding yes.

I’ve partnered with a new company, imaware health, to tell you about the latest development in Celiac screening and monitoring technology: at-home testing kits. imaware has 2 main disease states they’ve developed at this time: Celiac and Rheumatoid Arthritis {with more diseases to come soon!}. For Celiac testing, they have 2 kits:

  • At-home Celiac test
  • At-home Celiac monitoring

The true test is $99, utilizes the testing gold standards, and gives you physician-reviewed results in just 5 days. How wild is that?

The monitoring kit is $89 and can be a single-purchase or on 2, 4, or 6-month delivery schedules. This test assesses tTG-IgA as well as three additional biomarkers to ensure that your gut is healing from appropriate adherence to the GF diet.

You might be wondering, so how does the actual at-home test work?

The test arrives at your doorstep with the most clear, concrete directions. Here’s the gist: wash your hands, use the alcohol swab, poke your finger {I know, not as easily accepted by those non-T1Ds, but I promise it’s not bad!}, and collect 5 drops of blood in the prelabeled tube.

Send the tube back in the prepaid envelope the same day you collect it and await your online results!

I’ll be sure to report back when my results come in, but I was too excited to tell you about this new Celiac screening and monitoring technology– backed by my Celiac doctor, Dr. Guandalini at the University of Chicago Celiac Center, alongside other world-renowned experts!
