Celiac Disease Testing

Those with celiac disease knew about “gluten free” long before the term gained widespread attention. They have long been seeking ways to cut out gluten from their diets. That’s because their health, and sometimes their lives, depend 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.

Celiac disease lab testing

If you suspect you have celiac disease, it’s important to make a determination. We can 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 good testing option to talk to your doctor about.

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

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