Gluten Intolerance test kit (coeliac test)
This simple, easy to use at home test can help you to determine if you might be sensitive or intolerant to “gluten” a condition known as Coeliac Disease.
Gluten intolerance or coeliac disease (also known as wheat intolerance) is thought to affect up to 1% of the UK’s population but many people don’t realise they have it.
When you eat foods containing gluten most often found in wheat, rye and barley (for example bread, cakes, biscuits, pasta, breakfast cereals) a reaction can occur in the gastrointestinal tract giving rise to discomfort & unpleasant symptoms
Common symptoms of gluten allergy include bloating and wind, abdominal pains, constipation, diarrhoea, indigestion, stomach cramps, fatigue, skin complaints and even headaches.
In fact it is the variety and vagueness of symptoms that make testing so useful as when given a positive diagnosis simple changes to diet can relieve the symptoms. By simply avoiding foods containing gluten significant improvements can occur within weeks. Most supermarkets these days cater for those with gluten intolerance by stocking a variety of common gluten free breads, pastas and other foods.
This gluten intolerance test kit (coeliac test) gives a reliable result within 10 minutes in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
To perform the tests simply collect a small sample of blood from your finger using the lancet provided, drop into the buffer solution provided and then drop the test strip into the solution.
If your result is positive or if your symptoms persist you should always consult your doctor.
