6 Reasons to Consider Testing for a Gluten Intolerance

  1. You experience gastrointestinal symptoms after eating gluten (such as bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea).
  2. Your energy is low despite eating and sleeping well (both physical and mental energy).
  3. You have tried cutting out gluten from your diet and you still don’t feel well.
  4. You have done conventional testing to rule out a gluten allergy and it comes back normal (ie. Blood testing for gluten antibodies and/or a bowel biopsy).
  5. You have a family history of celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
  6. You have been diagnosed with what seems like an unrelated condition such as an autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, an inflammatory disorder, headaches, mood imbalances or an unspecified skin condition.
