In brief: New tests available

Gluten is found in bread, pasta, cookies, pizza crust and foods containing wheat, barley or rye.
People with celiac disease who eat foods containing gluten experience an immune reaction in their small intestines, causing damage to the inner surface of the small intestine, anemia and abdominal pain, and an inability to absorb certain nutrients. Test: tissue transglutaminase antibody (ttg), iga.
