At-home test for gluten intolerance (celiac disease)
If you suffer from stomach pain or bloating, diarrhoea, constant feeling of tiredness, anaemia, dermatitis, frequent mood swings, you may have a form of gluten intolerance called celiac disease.
Celiac disease is a type of autoimmune disease in which the intake of gluten-containing foods leads to damage to the lining of the small intestine. Gluten is actually made up of two proteins, gliadin and glutenin, which are found in wheat and other grains and cereals.
In people who suffer from celiac disease, the immune system mistakenly recognises gluten as a toxin and begins to produce antibodies that in turn attack the lining of the small intestine. Also known as gluten enteropathy, this disease is genetically predisposed.
If you experience symptoms similar to those typical for celiac disease, hurry up and take the gluten intolerance at-home test GLUTEN'ALARM!
