Gluten Intolerance Test - what is it and how the test is done
There are several food items that our body cannot properly digest. When this happens, the body reacts adversely to such food items, making us ill. One such food item is gluten. Gluten is contained in food items such as wheat, rye, barley, etc.
Many people can not digest gluten properly and develop ‘Celiac Disease.’ But before it gets diagnosed, the person might develop various symptoms such as bloating, fatigue, weight loss, and many others.
Therefore, for such people, a gluten intolerance test is ordered. It is taken in the form of a blood sample and is analysed for the presence of antibodies. A higher antibody titer in people with Celiac disease confirms the diagnosis.
