FAQ

Selecting and Ordering my Test
Q: Which test should I use and when or how often.

A: The urine test should be used when a major exposure is suspected in the past 24 hours. The stool test
should be used on a regular monitoring basis (weekly, biweekly, monthly) to detect total accumulated
gluten exposure over the previous 7 days.

Q: Why would I want to use the stool test?

A: The stool test is more sensitive than the urine test because this is how gluten is mostly cleared from the body. A negative urine test should always be followed-up the following day with the stool test to catch anything the urine test may have missed.

Q: How should I store the kits?

A: Kits should be stored at room temperature at all times, so storage in a bathroom drawer or cabinet is ideal. Excessive heat or cold should be avoided, especially for extended periods of time.

Q: Do I need a doctor to order this test for me?

A: GlutenDetect does not need a prescription or referral, you can purchase it direct on line or ask your Health Professional .

Reading my results

Q: The test line on my test is barely visible, is that positive?

Yes, any visible line in the test zone is a positive result, even if weak. If uncertain, conduct a second test to verify. If you used the urine test, check the next day with the stool test for greater sensitivity.

Q: There is pink on the main strip

The green line is only a control line to make sure that the test has worked correctly.

The test should only be read after 15 minutes.

When the test is being carried out during processing , occasionally the white panel strip turns pink or reddish, but this does not mean it is positive.

Only if the red line appears clearly where it is supposed to appear (in the T zone) should it be confirmed as positive.
