Celiac disease (CD) is caused by an immune response to gluten in genetically predisposed people. Gluten is the pasty glue-like protein found in grains such as wheat, barley, and rye. If you have celiac disease and accidentally eat something with gluten in it, you may get pain, gas, bloating, diarrhea, nausea and fatigue.
Because gluten can damage the intestinal lining in these individuals it becomes difficult for these individuals to absorb important nutrients from food and this can contribute to conditions including neurologic disorders, anemia, bone loss, fatigue, infertility, and can increase the risk of some cancers.
Our partners at Kashi Clinical Laboratories use the latest in quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction instrumentation with a high degree of sensitivity for detecting gene snips accurately.
Scientific rigor matters
SNP’s are only included in our panels when peer reviewed studies show there is a clear connection with treatment decision making, the studies are relevant across a range of population types, clinical intervention is indicated, and that nutritional or other lifestyle choices can affect the regulation of gene expression.
