What is the significance of Gluten Panel?
Many individuals have problems digesting products made from grains like wheat, rye, oats and barley. This is due to the inability of their digestive systems to digest a protein in these grains called gluten. Gluten insensitivity damages the small intestine, reducing its ability to absorb food and causes inflammation.
About 25% cases that are diagnosed are the ones, which show typical symptoms and the rest of them are silent or atypical ones, including:
- Recurrent digestive complaints
- Obesity, and many more.
Gluten sensitivity affects nearly every tissue and organ of the body, including:
- Endocrine system
- Blood vessels
- Muscles and even the nucleus of the cells.
Gluten sensitivity is a genetic disorder and cannot be treated. But after analyses of the underlying problem through the Gluten Support panel, it can be managed with the right kind of diet and the individual can still live and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
