    > Celiac Disease Information:

    > Serology ( Blood testing ) as well as Biopsy requires the presence of antibodies to gluten.

    > A gluten-free diet reduces circulating antibodies thus compromising a proper diagnosis. There are no clear guidelines for a proper gluten challenge to ensure sufficient circulating antibodies for a positive result; some individuals requires 1 month, other years.

    > Key Take HOME Message !

    With 1 in 100 being affected,
    Rule out Celiac Disease > Before going Gluten-Free
    Regardless of Rationale.
