Congratulations. Based on your test results you may be Gluten Sensitive.
But what does that actually mean? And what are you supposed to do from here?
You may have a ton of questions and that’s why I created this quick resource for you to wrap your mind around it all. So let’s dive right in.
What is the Difference Between Gluten Sensitivity, Intolerance, and Celiac Disease?
The difference is very big and it may just surprise you. Watch the video below to learn more on this, and to learn more about a TRUE gluten free diets Vs. Traditional gluten free diets…
Celiac Disease is not the same thing as Gluten sensitivity
Contrary to popular belief, celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are not the same thing. Unfortunately, most doctors aren’t up to speed on this very important topic. Standard procedure in a medical office is to test for serum antibodies to gliadin (the gluten found in wheat), and a substance called anti-tissue transglutaminase. These tests have a tendency to yield incorrect results. Additionally, a small bowel biopsy is often recommended. This test has also been shown to be very flawed and leads to incorrect diagnosis. The use of these tests as a standard leads to confusion and can delay a proper diagnosis for years.
To add to an already flawed approach, most people with gluten sensitivity don’t have celiac disease, they have other diseases or symptoms. Therefore, running tests to look for celiac disease also leads to a misdiagnosis. Below is a list of some of the common symptoms and diseases associated with gluten:
Insist that your Doctor Investigate For Gluten Sensitivity
Because gluten sensitivity is different from celiac disease, you must insist that your doctor investigate more than what has been typical (i.e. celiac serum testing and biopsy). Ask him/her to perform HLA-DQ genotyping of both HLA-DQ a1 and b1 genes.
Ask that they look for all of the markers linked to gluten not just the HLA-DQ2 and DQ8 markers linked to celiac disease. It is important that your doctor knows the difference. Please share this resource with them in hopes that we can educate the world on this very important topic.
