Research recommendations coming out of this guidance
Serological testing in people who have IgA deficiency:- What is the sensitivity and specificity of IgG tissue transglutaminase (tTG), IgG endomysial antibodies (EMA) and IgG deamidated gliadin peptide (DGP) tests in detecting coeliac disease in people with IgA deficiency?
Serological testing in people who test negative for anti-transglutaminase:- What is the sensitivity and specificity of IgA EMA and IgA DGP tests in detecting coeliac disease in
people who test negative for IgA tTG?
Dietary supplements:- Should people with coeliac disease be offered calcium and vitamin D supplements for a specific time period soon after their initial diagnosis?
Dietitian contribution to patient management:- How can the role of the dietitian contribute most effectively within a coeliac disease team?
Frequency of monitoring:- What is the effectiveness of more frequent monitoring compared with monitoring at 12 months after diagnosis in people with newly diagnosed coeliac disease?
