Get to the Root of Gluten Sensitivity
In the last few years, the term “gluten-free” can be found everywhere, and for good reason. Gluten sensitivity can cause more than just an upset stomach. Symptoms can range from nausea and hives to difficulty breathing and malnutrition. Because of a wide range of potential symptoms, gluten sensitivity can be difficult for physicians to diagnose. This is where genetic testing can help. Your DNA can reveal if you’re genetically predisposed to one form of gluten sensitivity, celiac disease. With your genetic analysis you will get personalized diet recommendations describing your diet type and gluten-free food options. Includes Diet Guidelines.
See What Personalized, Genetic Recommendations Can Do For You
Gain clarity regarding your genetics to help you and your physician understand your gluten sensitivity and develop a diet to meet your nutritional needs. Gluten Fit can help you and your physician create a personalized roadmap designed to lead you toward optimal health.
With Gluten Fit, you’ll learn:
- If you carry celiac disease-associated alleles that confirm risk for the disease
- What type of diet best suits you
Get a Handle on Negative Side Effects
Many people don’t realize that health issues they’re experiencing, like rashes, fatigue, nausea or hunger, are due to celiac disease. Continuing to consume gluten can wreak havoc on your intestines and cause long term damage. With genetic testing, you can determine if you are at low or high risk to develop celiac disease, and you can adjust your diet to fit your body’s needs.
Determine if Genetics Play a Role
Because celiac disease is difficult to diagnose, it may run in your family without anyone realizing it. By looking at your specific allelic variants of your HLA family of genes, genetic testing can help you determine if genetics play a role in your gluten sensitivity. As a result, you’ll have a greater understanding of the root cause of your gluten intolerance, as well as next steps to take.
