What Happens if my Celiac Disease Test is Positive?
Believe it or not, you are not alone! Celiac disease is becoming increasingly common among Americans. In fact, 1 in every 133 people in the USA has it.
ecause of the increasing commonality of gluten allergies, many food manufacturers now offer gluten free products making it much easier to find options that will work for you.
If your Celiac Disease test comes back positive your doctor will direct you to resources to help you get started with a gluten free lifestyle.
You will then have to learn the art of substituting foods containing gluten for other grains, that will give you the nutritional value you need, without making you sick.
While this may seem like an overwhelming task, fortunately, many resources are available to help you as you begin.
If celiac is ruled out, but you are still feeling ill, you might like to try an elimination diet to see if there are any foods that you react to. You can then decide whether or not to cut them out of your diet.
