Celiac Disease Testing

Those with celiac disease knew about “gluten free” way before Betty Crocker.

Before products removing the gluten from its ingredient list became mainstream and found their way onto every supermarket shelf, those with celiac disease were finding ways to cut out gluten from their diets. That’s because their health, and sometimes their lives, depended on it.

Those with celiac disease suffer from an autoimmune diseasewhere their bodies attack their small intestines if they eat gluten – a protein that’s in wheat, rye and barley.

The Celiac Disease Foundation says:

  • 1 in 100 people have this disorder
  • People with a first-degree relative with celiac disease (parent, child, sibling) have a 1 in 10 risk of developing celiac disease – it’s commonly seen as a genetic condition.

Lab testing for celiac disease

If you suspect you have celiac disease, it’s important to find out. We can help run the lab test that will let you know if you have a clinical case of celiac.

Your food sensitivities might not stop at wheat – which is why a food allergy panel may be a smart choice for you.

It’s important to know a doctor will likely have follow-up steps for you regardless of the outcome of the lab test.

Also, the test may come back as negative for celiac disease, you may still have a wheat sensitivity you’ll need to manage with a gluten-free diet.
