Celiac Disease Testing & Naturopathy

Doctors Test For Celiac Disease at Vancouver Naturopathy Clinic

Celiac disease is a well-known allergy condition describing a person’s intolerance to gluten (and gluten related) foods. Celiac disease is an adverse allergy to gluten and is both a disease of malabsorption – suggesting that nutrients ingested are not absorbed properly within the body, and an abnormal immune tendancy against gluten (and gluten related) foods. While you may have heard of this type of gluten food allergy before, you might not be aware of all the symptoms of celiac disease, because many of the symptoms are inconsistent from one person to another, making the disease uneasy to spot and difficult to immediately diagnose.

Symptoms Of Celiac Disease

For celiac disease, a person’s gluten reactions and intolerances can run the gamut of mild GI discomfort and almost unnoticeable stomach irritation to a progressive abdominal pain and other extreme health issues.  The condition of celiac disease can affect a wide range of health concerns and patient discomforts such as:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Bloody stool
  • Fatigue
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Bloating
  • Fluid retention
  • Bone pain
  • Flatulence
  • Vertigo
  • Abdominal pressure
  • Constipation
  • Joint pain
  • Liquid stools
  • Weakness
  • Weakness
  • Bleeding tendency
  • Weakness in dental enamel
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Weight loss

In addition, diagnosing celiac disease becomes even more difficult to spot as this gluten intolerance in patients closely mimics symptoms of other body conditions such as anaemia, Crones, colitis, gastric ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome and even anxiety, depression and other related nervous condition disorders.

Naturopathic Doctors Test For Gluten Intolerance

celiac disease test vancouver - stomachTesting for Celiac disease with one of our naturopathic physicians is readily available for persons experiencing mild to moderate, and even severe to extreme GI symptoms and other imbalances, singularly or together, that may suggest a gluten intolerance or gluten allergy reaction.

Although there is no present cure for Celiac conditions and/or the disease, it is imperative that patients experiencing GI discomfort or other related celiac disease conditions, seek testing for the disease and follow up with ongoing counselling on proper after-testing, gluten-free nutrition and care.

The fact is that a celiac condition or disease that goes undiagnosed for a prolonged period of time can harm the body and cause a whole host of other medical issues for a person, including permanent damage to the small intestine.

What is most challenging about diagnosis for a gluten intolerance or celiac disease is that there are great variants in people with celiac disease’s sensitivity to gluten, and although one may have severe and highly noticeable symptoms to gluten, while others may have only slight and barely noticeable inflammatory issues when gluten is ingested, damage to the lower intestine, nonetheless, can occur in either case. Our naturopathic doctors at often recommend celiac testing for any person experiencing one (or multiple) symptoms of celiac disease or gluten allergy.
