SYDNEY, New Zealand – (05/10/2017) International DNA testing company EasyDNA continues to expand its product portfolio by introducing its new Celiac Disease Genetic test which screens an individual’s genes to confirm whether they carry the genes implicated in celiac disease.
EasyDNA’s initiative to launch its new Celiac Disease Genetic test stems from the increase in celiac disease awareness over the past few years. Commenting on this development, the company’s Product Manager stated that “celiac disease has moved from being an unknown and rare disorder to a common disease affecting a more than expected amount of people across the globe. This occurrence has encouraged EasyDNA to start offering its customers an easy and reliable genetic testing service which confirms whether the individual being tested is at risk of developing the disease.”
The company recommends that the client consults with a medical specialist when doing this test. The individual’s DNA will be tested by an accredited laboratory for two specific genes, HLA DQ2 and DQ8, which are commonly found in people with celiac disease. Not having these genes will likely mean you will not develop the disease. It is important to note that our genetic makeup never changes meaning that the Celiac Disease Genetic test is a one-time test.
EasyDNA Product’s Manager final comments were “our product vision for this test is to provide our customers with a helpful result, indicating an early warning about the possibility of developing the disease or giving them peace of mind they are not at a higher risk than the population in general.”
