We are hopeful that gone are the days where we need to reintroduce gluten into our bodies, just as they begin to feel better, in order to properly identify if gluten is the culprit.
GOOD NEWS!! Want to get tested for celiac without having to ingest gluten the week prior and feel awful in order to have a more accurate reading? Here is an article we found that talks about a blood test that works to identify patients with and without celiac in the absence of gluten: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29146521 (please note that we like to share what we find for general reference and not medical advice).
There is ongoing research and discoveries around Celiac and how bodies identify or react to gluten. If you find an interesting article or hear of something that may influence the gluten-free world, please let us know! You can message us on our InstaGram or FaceBook accounts (@wheatsend), or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you!
