(Test Code 8019)
In the last few years, the term “gluten-free” can be found everywhere, and for good reason. Gluten sensitivity can cause more than just an upset stomach. Symptoms can range from nausea and hives to difficulty breathing and malnutrition. Because of a wide range of potential symptoms, gluten sensitivity can be difficult for physicians to diagnose. This is where genetic testing can help. Your DNA can reveal if you’re genetically predisposed to one form of gluten sensitivity, celiac disease. With your genetic analysis you will get personalized diet recommendations describing your diet type and gluten-free food options.
What can you do with this information?
You can gain clarity regarding your genetics to help you and your physician understand your gluten sensitivity and develop a diet to meet your nutritional needs. Gluten Fit can help you and your physician create a personalized roadmap designed to lead you towards optimal health.
With Gluten Fit, you’ll learn:
- If you carry celiac disease-associated alleles that confirm risk for the disease
- What type of diet best suits you
