Celiac and Gluten Sensitivity Testing
Have you noticed digestive distress after eating meals that contain gluten? This test is the best place to start to confirm whether or not you have Celiac disease or you have a sensitivity to gluten.
Clinical management of the patient with Celiac disease involves strict, lifelong elimination of gluten. Patients with gluten sensitivity may be able to tolerate small amounts of gluten over time after an initial period of elimination.
Conditions and symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Abdominal bloating
- Abdominal pain
- Aphthous stomatitis
- Alternating bowel habits
- “Foggy mind” or inability to concentrate
- Joint pain
- Skin rash
