Buy SELFCheck Gluten Sensitivity (Coeliac) Test Online in the UK
Coeliac disease is a lifelong, genetically inherited intestinal ailment that affects around one in every hundred people in the UK, however most people are not diagnosed or are recognised after years of suffering.
The SELFCheck Gluten Sensitivity self-test detects specific IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTGA) in the blood - a confirmed biomarker for celiac disease.
Diagnosis of coeliac disease is complicated by the wide range of symptoms that patients may bring to their doctor, including bloating after eating wheat-containing bread or pasta, diarrhoea and constipation, muscle wasting, lethargy, and skin issues.
It has recently been proposed that persons with the following medical illnesses be checked for celiac disease as part of their ongoing care and management: Type 1 diabetes; irritable bowel syndrome (IBS); underactive or hyperactive thyroid glands; and dermatitis herpetiformis, a blistering skin ailment.
The benefit of performing a SELFCheck Gluten Sensitivity Test in private ensures confidentiality while also creating the incentive needed to take further steps in terms of personal health management earlier, and consultation with a healthcare professional will facilitate earlier medical intervention.
