The only way to definitively know if you are gluten intolerant/sensitive is to check if you have any gluten intolerance genetic mutations. If you have even a single mutation in these genes it’s recommended that you avoid gluten. If you’re gluten intolerant, don’t know it, and continue to eat gluten, you’re at increased risk of a wide range of symptoms and health conditions.
Did you know:
- 99% of people who are gluten intolerant don’t know they are.
- Only 1 in 3 people experience any obvious gastrointestinal discomfort.
We recommend that any woman who is pregnant or planning for a baby should screen for gluten intolerance. The immunoglobulins triggered from gluten intolerance can cross the placenta and interfere with the development of the central nervous system in the baby.
