It’s important to recognize the difference between a gluten intolerance and Celiac disease. Symptoms caused by a gluten intolerance are far less severe (i.e. indigestion, bloating, abdominal pain) and will disappear once gluten is removed from the body.
Celiac disease is diagnosed through a series of tests, including blood work and biopsy. There is also a genetic component so an investigation into family history is important. At Midhurst Pharmacy we can assist you with ensuring your prescription and non-prescription needs are gluten free. Our Ideal Protein weight loss program offers many gluten-free products for those affected by Celiac disease .Come in and speak with us today.
