Celiac, IBS, Crohn’s Testing

One in every 133 Americans suffers from celiac disease totaling 3 million Americans.  85% of these people have not been diagnosed so they either struggle along trying to figure out what foods to avoid on their own and suffer from painful and sometimes, debilitating symptoms of celiac disease.  Several millions more suffer from gluten intolerance, which can be very painful and can get worse over time.  Intolerances differ significantly from allergies. Unlike allergies, intolerances may vary from situation to situation, while an allergy always produces the same reaction.

True celiac disease, unlike gluten intolerance, is genetically based and carried from parents or grandparents to their children.  If gluten is ingested the villi in the small intestine are damaged over time reducing the villi’s ability to absorb needed nutrients from food and increasing abdominal discomfort.  Functional gastrointestinal disorders affect 2 in every 5 Americans and include Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Celiac Disease, Functional Dyspepsia (indigestion), Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.  The CICA test can help to determine if you have Celiac Disease or some other gastrointestinal disorder so that you can properly treat your symptoms.
