Did you know that up to 40% of the general population in the UK has a genetic predisposition to developing gluten intolerance? If you have this gluten sensitivity, it is possible that gluten intolerance can develop at any time.
Gluten intolerance — also known as coeliac disease — is the inability to process gluten, a protein family found in certain foods. Ingesting gluten can lead to inflammation of the small intestine which can damage the intestinal lining; once this occurs, other nutrients cannot be absorbed properly.
This range of possible symptoms is highly extensive including fatigue, stomach pains, diarrhoea, constipation, depression and growth disorders.
This test will tell you whether you have a genetic predisposition for gluten intolerance as well as whether you have already developed gluten intolerance. In short, this test will let you quickly, easily and reliably detect or rule out the possibility of gluten intolerance.
To take this test, it is important to eat a normal diet that contains gluten; this is the same for any general care procedure or test that would check for gluten intolerance. Without gluten in your diet, there is a high risk that the test sample will return with a false negative (in other words, the presence of the disease will go undetected). If you have been eating a gluten-free or gluten-reduced diet, make sure you reintroduce gluten into your diet before sampling to minimize this risk.
An individual’s immunological reaction to reintroducing gluten varies greatly with person to person; to ensure maximum accuracy, we recommend eating two to three slices of bread each day for three weeks before taking a sample.
