One-Day Celiac Disease DNA Test on Cheek Cells Offered by Kimball Genetics
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
Celiac disease is a chronic, autoimmune, gastrointestinal disorder. In genetically susceptible individuals, ingestion of gluten-containing grains, especially wheat, causes inflammation of the small intestine mucosa and leads to malabsorption. Long believed to be a rare disorder, celiac disease is now known to be one of the most common, under-diagnosed diseases, affecting 1:120-1:300 individuals in European and North American populations. Earlyantibody and genetic testing and subsequent elimination of gluten from the diet is essential in aiding prevention and treatment.
Due to the extremely variable presentation of disease symptoms and severity, diagnosing celiac disease is difficult. Antiendomysial and tissue transglutaminase antibody test results can be equivocal depending upon diet adherence and stage of disease. Kimball Genetics One-Day Celiac Disease DNA Test is a reliable and critical tool for accurately diagnosing celiac disease.
Kimball Genetics One-Day Celiac Disease DNA Test includes highest accuracy of testing, one-day turnaround time, detailed test reports, free genetic counseling for physicians and patients, and excellent personal service
