New App Helps Celiac Sufferers Track Gluten-free Expenses

Celiac.com 05/05/2016 - Frustrated by the process of tracking gluten-free expenses in hopes of using the Canadian government's tax credit, which entitles people with celiac disease to claim the incremental costs, accountant Justin Gravelle has released an app called Celitax, designed to help people with celiac disease easily track their everyday gluten-free purchases.

However, tracking those expenses over the year can be messy and frustrating. Enter Celitax.

The app is currently available for iPhones, with an Android version to follow. The app digitizes receipts and stores them inside the app, allowing users to review or download them at any time and calculate their gluten-free tax credit in one click.

A user simply takes a photo of their receipt, which is stored in the app for safe keeping. Next, they input their gluten-free purchases into self-created custom categories based on their purchasing habits.

The Canadian government hasn't set average prices for non-gluten-free foods, Gravelle says, so users have to input an estimate themselves so the app can calculate their tax credit.

Still, sounds a lot better than digging through a pile of paper receipts at the end of the year to document your gluten-free expenses.

I used to get migraines. Someone mentioned them as a symptom of celiac disease, and I realized that I had not had one since going gluten-free. Seventeen years and counting...

Migraines can be associated with celiac disease, but the only way to know is to get tested as there are as many as 300 possible symptoms. Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I wish you well!

Welcome. I think that the IgA and IgG tests are ordered as control tests for celiac disease testing. If in range (or close to it), the TTG IgA and the TTG IgG tests are considered to be valid (results accurate). Those tests also let a doctor know if there is an immune system issue. You are ta...

Hi, I'm trying to sort out my 11 year old daughter who has a lot of stomach pain and belching. Her IGG and IGA were both positive 203 and 68 (above 25 positive at this lab) her TTG was negative and her biopsy was negative. What does this mixed result mean? Thanks for you...
