21 Sep Think you may have Coeliac Disease?
Learn what’s going on in your body so nothing holds you back, today we are talking about Coeliac disease.
Some of us simply can’t process gluten – but not everyone knows that’s what is causing our bloating, headaches, discomfort or tiredness.
It is a genetic, autoimmune digestive disorder thought to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. When someone with coeliac disease accidentally eats food containing gluten, it triggers an immune response. This causes the lining of the small intestine to become inflamed and damaged.
This is painful and makes it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients and vitamins from the food. As a result those with the disease are advised to avoid all gluten completely. If not treated, it can lead to other serious health problems such as osteoporosis, bowel cancer, and can cause infertility.
With Randox Health’s specialised Coeliac Autoimmune Disease test, you can find out whether you’re likely to be gluten-intolerant or have coeliac disease.
The Coeliac Disease test is included in our Everyman, Everywoman and Signature programmes, and within our Digestive Health Programme, which is on offer during the month of September for only £200 (RRP £300).
Finding out you are gluten-intolerant can be easily managed, with a wide variety of non-gluten alternatives.
Book your test today and take back control of your health.
