Coeliac Disease (CD) is a permanent disease of the small intestine, caused by a reaction to the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley. The intestinal lining is subjected to severe attack as a result of the gluten. The intestinal lining becomes leaky and loses its ability to absorb nutrients from food. It’s a good idea to look into coeliac testing if you suffer from the symptoms below.

Presenting Symptoms Include:
  • Abdominal cramping, diarrhoea, and bloating
  • Chronic digestive problems
  • Weight loss or poor weight gain
  • Depleted – anaemia, tiredness, and mouth ulcers etc.
  • Bloated with fluid retention
  • Thyroid disease is associated with coeliac disease
  • Depression is also associated with gluten sensitivity

The one word which summarised coeliac disease is “depleted”. Most patients suffer years of chronic ill health before a diagnosis is made. In most cases the associated symptoms scream the loudest. Because the associated exhaustion, depression, thyroid disease etc, is so distressing, it receives all the attention and all of the treatment. Yet all the time the true cause goes undetected.

You should really suspect CD if despite all the best treatment, your condition fails to improve.  This is because the proper diagnosis has not been made. In truth, many thousands of people are but treating the associated symptoms.

Diagnosis:

Coeliac Testing is simple and involves screening a blood sample for tissue Transglutaminase antibodies. A positive result from this coeliac testing is compelling evidence of Coeliac Disease. A follow-up intestinal biopsy may be performed for final confirmation.

Blood Sample:

Only a few fingerprick drops are required to do the Coeliac Testing analysis. If you have already provided a blood sample for the food intolerance test, this coeliac test can be processed from the blood sample you have already provided.

Price Of Test:   €90
