imaware > imaware™ Celiac Disease test - building awareness to Celiac Disease
Celiac Disease is an immune reaction in the small intestine to foods containing gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. This reaction slowly damages the small intestine’s lining and reduces its ability to absorb certain nutrients, leading to malabsorption. In children, this reaction and resulting malabsorption can also impact growth and development.
Currently there is no cure, but for most people, following a gluten-free diet has shown to help reduce reactions and symptoms, and in fact promote healing of the small intestine - you cannot “grow out” of Celiac Disease.
Celiac Disease is one of the most underdiagnosed disease in the United States. According to the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center: “Celiac Disease affects at least 3 million Americans. It is the most common — and one of the most underdiagnosed –- hereditary autoimmune conditions in the United States today. The average length of time it takes for a symptomatic person to be diagnosed with celiac disease is the US is four years; this type of delay dramatically increases an individual’s risk of developing auto-immune disorders, neurological problems, osteoporosis and even cancer.
Detecting Celiac Disease earlier and adjusting lifestyle habits and diet have shown to provide significant benefit to the quality of life of those who suffer from the disease. Patients who adjust their lifestyle may significantly reduce side-effects such as: anemia, weight loss, diarrhea, abdominal pain, chronic fatigue, osteoporosis, and infertility.
