The HPU screening by means of a blood test consists of:
- a determination of the blood sugar level (fructosamine) because the tendency is to convert fructose less quickly into glucose;
- a gluten (wheat, barley, rye and oat cereal protein) sensitivity test (IgA- Total Glut Test);
- a test that measures the quantity of histamine that the body holds and which does not come from allergy (the whole blood histamine test);
- diamine oxidase;
- and simple thyroid hormone screening (TSH).
The costs of the additional blood test are € 164,–
You can take the test to your hospital clinic or GP lab for the blood sample. You must return the test yourself . We store your blood for 6 months in a freezer at very low temperature, allowing for the possibility of follow-up research using the same sample.
