Purpose of running this test:
Malabsorption, or leaky gut, can reduce nutrient absorption, minimize amino acid levels, reflect infection or inflammation in your gut, and deter growth. The Celiac Test is very useful for giving you a sense of the degree to which your body may be over reacting to gliadin and gluten as allergens in your system, as well as the degree to which leaky gut may be an issue. Although the Intestinal Permeability Test described in Chapter 11 is not available in all states, wherever possible, run both tests together for a more comprehensive sense of gut permeability and inflammation.

|Eliminate gluten from your diet. Consider Leaky Gut nucleotide blend, Bowel Support nucleotide blend, and Glucosamine/Chondroitin Plus to help with GI mucosal integrity. Also, consider General Support nucleotide blend, and Cytokine Balance nucleotide blend, along with Inflammatory Pathway Support capsules and VitaOrgan. If your amino acids are low on a UAA, consider AminoAssist spray, AminoAssist capsules, Egg Protein Powder, and Ora-Placenta. T cell and B cell support capsules may help support immune function if your IgG levels are out of balance. Colostrum in particular supports low IgA levels.|

Related Tests to Run
Issues with celiac are often tightly tied to problems with intestinal permeability. For this reason it is ideal to run both the Celiac Test and the Intestinal Permeability Test at the same time. Consider a UAA test to see how well you are absorbing nutrients. Also, use the a CSA test and GI Test to assess digestive markers and to look for bacterial, yeast or other infection that may be a cause of inflammation and malabsorption. A MAP test is also useful to look for signs of ketosis, as well as to get a measurement of quinolinic acid levels. 97% of the serotonin in your body is found in your GI tract, so consider a NT test along with the MAP test to assess serotonin levels.
