Celiac Disease

Are you experiencing these symptoms: bloating, chronic, diarrhea, constipation gas?

Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease that occurs in genetically predisposed people, where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. This digestive problem affects the ability of the small intestine to absorb nutrients from food, and can cause a wide range of symptoms.

Our clinic offers Celiac testing for those who suspect they may have the disease. Those with Celiac Disease are sensitive to gluten, and must adhere to a gluten-free diet.

Our team will conduct the initial blood test.  We suggest you share your results with your medical doctor, as they can provide guidance and support to help you manage your health or conduct further testing if required. .

Common symptoms of Celiac Disease can include abdominal pain, anemia, anxiety, brain fog, bloating, gas, constipation, chronic diarrhea, fatigue, persistent unexplained gastrointestinal symptoms, and nausea or vomiting and skin rashes.

Once you have been tested it is important to follow up with your medical physician.
