Have you been diagnosed as having Celiac disease? Do you have desire to help others and researchers? We have a plasma donation program designed just for you and we need patients to participate. Plasma is a vital component in the very test kit(s) that were used in aiding your diagnosis. Plasma contains proteins and antibodies and the researchers need those antibodies to create the positive controls to diagnose other patients. Without plasma donors such as yourself these very test kits run a risk of going on back order making a speedy and accurate diagnosis more difficult when physicians or hospitals need the kits to make the diagnosis.
The plasma donation program is called plasmapheresis where your plasma is spun off from the red blood cells and you get your red cells returned to you thru this process. Plasma donation programs are so safe that the FDA allows you to do so more frequently than say a whole blood drive. Plasma is “rebuilt” within a 24 hour period allowing you to donate twice in a 7 day period, whereas whole blood you can only do so every 56 days/8 weeks because it takes your body this long to recoup/re-build the red cells donated.
Participants who qualify and donate are compensated in the program each time they donate and can earn $300 a visit ($600 or more per week) for donating plasma to help others. All travel related expenses are pre-paid by us to get you to/from a facility nearest you to participate and you still get your full payment at the conclusion of each visit.

What is Celiac disease?
Celiac disease is an immune disease in which people can’t eat gluten because it will damage their small intestine. If you have celiac disease and eat foods with gluten, your immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. It may also be in other products like vitamins and supplements, hair and skin products, toothpastes, and lip balm.
Celiac disease affects each person differently. Symptoms may occur in the digestive system, or in other parts of the body. One person might have diarrhea and abdominal pain, while another person may be irritable or depressed. Irritability is one of the most common symptoms in children. Some people have no symptoms.
Celiac disease is genetic. Blood tests can help your doctor diagnose the disease. Your doctor may also need to examine a small piece of tissue from your small intestine. Treatment is a diet free of gluten.
