What is Endomysial Antibody IgG?
The Endomysial Antibody IgG test is performed to aid in the diagnosis of an autoimmune disease called Celiac Disease, where the immune system of the body reacts to a protein named gluten which is found in grains like wheat, barley, etc. The test can also be used to screen people who have blood relatives diagnosed with Celiac disease. It can also be used to monitor the efficacy of gluten free diets for the patient.

Dermatitis herpetiformis is a chronic blistering skin condition, characterised by blisters filled with a watery fluid.
