Celiac.com 04/06/2018 - There is a good reason why GlutenTox Home test kits have been around for so long—they work really well—and, like this Web site, have withstood the test of time. In addition to the GlutenTox Home test kit, they also make a “GlutenTox Pro” kit which is designed for food manufacturers, restaurants, food retailers, etc., to be able to quickly test foods, ingredients, batches, surfaces, etc. I decided to test my daughter's hot breakfast cereal, which is a pre-packaged oatmeal mixture that is sold at Costco. She loves it, but my concern is the “manufactured in a facility that also processes wheat” disclaimer on the label, and the fact that the oats are not certified gluten-free. The testing process took only a few minutes to carry out, and I was fully expecting to be the bearer of bad news and have to tell my daughter that it contains gluten. I was, however, quite surprised to find that the cereal tested gluten-free down to 5 parts per million. The fact that GlutenTox test kits, both the “Home” and “Pro” versions, can test down to 5 parts per million is amazing—this is as accurate as modern professional labs! The kits are perfect for home or professional use, and it's clear that GlutenTox test kits will continue to be a great choice for those who demand a highly sensitive test for gluten.

Before40 posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsWell, for starters I think I am most likely like most people here. I have been struggling with a variety of symptoms, and trying to figure out what is bothering me has been a total guessing nightmare, with very little help from doctors. Even though I’ve gone to see them so many times. I recently found this biotech company that helps people find out if they really have a gluten celiac problem, or if it is something else. Using dna through hair or saliva, it was pain free, which was awesome! They tested me for a combination of intolerances/allergies/etc. My dietician referred me to them. It’s a place called Lab 600, they have a dot com and I got some testing done with them direct to their lab service and found out it is the same lab company that the allergist uses that I was going to go see next month. He wanted 1,100 for the testing at his office! The lab fee from the lab company itself was only $99 direct. So I went direct to them. They gave me Physician accepted results for my family doctor to keep on file and it cost me way less to get real answers without paying big prices. I wanted to let everyone else know because dealing with doctors who inflate prices is ridiculous, and I think it should be regulated or illegal to increase rates tgat high! Anyhow, I thought gluten was what was bothering me and my test came back it let me know that it was actually lactose. I had no idea, I really thought that it was a celiac issue. I got my daughters checked as well. One of them was scott-free no issues, the other one did come back with gluten intolerant results, with a wheat allergy and they also found out she was vitamin D deficient. So we have started to give her vitamin D supplements, and she has been starting to feel way better. So if this experience can possibly help someone else here I wanted to post, as I have been using the forum here and many other sites trying to get advice through all the symptoms and chaos of trying to figure out what was going on with myself, and I know how stressful it can be. Good luck to everyone!
Hi all, I am new to this forum and i am very happy to have found it... I am pretty sure I have Gluten Sensitivity. (probably non-celiac). I started to get quite brain fog after lunch, and I started to suspect that the lack of focus and mood changes had to do something with food consumption So, I did an elimination diet, and I concluded that wheat could be the main cause of it . So, I went gluten-free and the brain fog is gone... every now and again i eat a bit of wheat to confirm the symptoms and yes, it does not agree with my brain... I don't have any gastrointestinal issues I would like to get tested. In a way a positive result would be a relief, because i will stop investigating, I will fully accept and I won't feel tempted to eat a slice of pizza after a couple of wine glasses. I read about the most complete tests that would also detect non-celiac gluten sensitivity and the Array 3 test from Cyrex Labs is constantly cited as the test to do. The "problem" is that I have been off gluten for 6 months and you need some gluten exposure before testing. The reality is that I cannot understand how much exposure you need before doing the tests. I have read different things about gluten reintroduction before the tests. In Cyrex's FAQ I read that you need sufficient exposure to gluten of at least 25 days before the test. Instead, Dr Perlmutter (the Grain Brain author) states that that would not be necessary because "IgG levels which persist for at least a year following exposure" . I read other healthcare practitioners that recommend to eat "half a slice of bread per day for 10 days. Stop and then wait 25 days before doing your blood sample" I am confused. Do you have any experience on gluten reintroduction before doing Cyrex Labs tests? Thanks
