About Tissue transglutaminase (igg)
What is a tissue transglutaminase IgG?
Tissue transglutaminase (tTG) IgG antibodies are present in certain autoimmune conditions, most notable coeliac disease. Antibodies are proteins typically produced by the immune system to target and protect against harmful entities. In rare cases the immune system can malfunction, producing antibodies which target and attack the body’s own cells. Disorders caused by this process are called autoimmune diseases and can be potentially life-threatening.
Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition which results in the immune system attacking cells in the small intestine. This reaction is typically triggered by exposure to gluten found in wheat, barley and rye.
Why take the test?
This test checks for the presence of tissue transglutaminase (tTG) IgG antibodies. It is typically used to diagnose autoimmune conditions such as coeliac disease.
