Testing for Celiac Disease Is Easier than Ever!

 

I want to share with you a truly remarkable advance in celiac disease testing shared by Dr. Peter Osborne, Diplomate with the American Clinical Board of Nutrition. Whereas testing for gluten sensitivity and celiac disease has been traditionally performed in a doctor’s office with blood antibody tests and intestinal biopsies, genetic testing is readily available, and you can test yourself at home with a cheek swab. It has been known for some time but it is always important to share this advice and news for anyone new to this scene, the celiac and gluten-free scene that is.

Dr. Osborne also gives a simple and easy-to-comprehend lecture on gluten, gluten sensitivity, and celiac disease, and how to tell the difference. Check out this link—you don’t want to miss it!

  1. This was how we finally confirmed that our 13 year old daughter was celiac, with the help of one of these tests. The cheek swab was really easy as you could imagine so we didn’t have to fight with her to do it. I highly recommend it.

  2. Oh man this sounds great. More and more home tests seem to be cropping up all over the place…not just for celiac disease but for all sorts of tests. They are very convenient especially if you’re like me and live in a rural area. It’s 20 minutes to the nearest doctor’s office.

  3. Dr. Osborne is great, I tell you. I learn stuff from him every time I watch a video or read an article of his even though I already know quite a bit about gluten and celiac disease.

  4. This is how I finally got my daughter diagnosed. It was clear she had a sensitivity to gluten so we put her on a gluten free diet, but then we didn’t want to put her back on the diet to get a biopsy and look for intestinal damage, so we did this cheek swab at home and found she had the gene. She was finally diagnosed afterwards. It is a great diagnostic tool.

  5. hmm maybe I should give this a try. I still haven’t been diagnosed celiac but it’s very clear the gluten free diet is exactly what my body needed. my ibs is so much better and so are my migraines just from being on the diet for 4 months. It’s seriously like night and day. I do wonder however if I’m officially “celiac” or not.

  6. There is NO positive genetic test for celiac.
    Roughly 30% of the general population has one of the HLA genes that is known to inrease the risk, but only a tiny fraction of these people actually get the disease. Using this test to show the presence of celiac would result in the vast majority of results being wrong.
