Testing for Celiac Disease is Easy!

     As hard as it is to get a celiac diagnosis in the U.S., the diagnosis isn’t difficult to test for. Simple blood tests detect the disease over ninety percent of the time. The diagnosis is then confirmed by an upper endoscopy. A small, flexible tube is slipped into the mouth of the sedated patient, down his esophagus and stomach and into the first part of the small intestine, where biopsies are taken and then examined for changes seen in celiac disease. If you suspect that you or someone you know may have celiac disease, make an appointment right away with your doctor to get tested!

    Wow! only 90% off the time? Hopefully they come out with a way to test 100% of the time in the future.
