Gut Health Profile (celiac & sensitivity)
What is celiac?
Those who suffer from celiac disease experience a genetically driven immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and many processed and packaged foods. This reaction, over time, causes damage to the small intestine and can potentially prevent proper absorption of some important nutrients.
It is estimated that 85% of Americans with celiac disease do not know.
What is non-celiac gluten sensitivity?
Commonly associated with gastro-intestinal inflammation, non-celiac gluten sensitivity is believed to be significantly more common than celiac disease. This reaction is a response from the innate immune system and is identified by a cellular analysis through Alcat Testing.
