I had heard that home test kits for Celiac Disease were available in Canadian pharmacies. My mother is up in Canada and went to 3 different pharmacies, but each said they have never heard of them. One even told her they were only available in US pharmacies. Was I mistaken?

Try the Canadian Celiac Association? I think you're looking for something called Celiacsure?

Yes, that is the test (or bio card), but don't they actually have them on pharmacy shelves? Since she was in Canada, she was just going to pick one up.

I used a biocard test that a local health food store had ordered in for a special promotion (was it celiac awareness month in May?). They don't normally carry it. If she is not going to be here for a few weeks, she could order it ahead of time through some store or pharmacy.

Good luck.

Interesting, I thought they were supposed to be easily available. Of course I'm not Canadian, so what do I know!

I see it's been a while and no one else has posted, I wonder if you started a new thread in this International topic asking specifically for "Celiacsure Test...need help finding" or something like that, more of the Canadians will come around. There are a lot of Canadians here!

Good luck!
