Gluten and Food Sensitivity Testing from Complete Care Brings Multi Symptom Relief to Stuart, FL
Gluten based foods are a staple of the Western diet. This unique little protein is found in numerous substances that contain wheat, barley and rye ingredients. While many people can ingest gluten with any issue, some individuals will experience a number of uncomfortable symptoms and side effects in direct response to this protein. One of the trickiest things about identifying sensitivity to gluten or celiac disease is the variety and familiarity of symptoms. This is where gluten and food sensitivity testing is essential.
Often, those with undiagnosed gluten sensitivity will mistake their reaction as indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, or other generalized digestive issue. To compound the mystery of identifying gluten as the cause of certain problems, the symptoms of the gluten sensitivity may vary each time and include ailments that aren’t always directly related to digestion. Common digestive problems that are associated with gluten sensitivity and celiac disease include bloating, abdominal discomfort and pain, as well as diarrhea; while other, extraintestinal issues include migraines and headaches, lethargy and fatigue, hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder, and muscle, bone and joint pain. At Complete Care, Stuart FL’s Chiropractic & Wellness Center, Dr. Leo Hart works with patients to help them pinpoint the presence of celiac disease, as well as gluten intolerance and other food sensitivities. With specialized gluten and food sensitivity testing, patients are able to finally understand what’s been causing their discomfort—and make safe, practical steps towards finding relief.
Dr. Hart’s gluten and food sensitivity testing begins with a simple blood test and a test for autoimmune conditions that define celiac disease, which is a lifelong though rare condition that often goes undiagnosed. In the event of celiac disease, there are numerous steps that Dr. Hart and his patients can take to make the condition manageable and comfortable. If tests reveal that the patient is affected by non-celiac gluten sensitivity, or an atypical or latent form of celiac disease, dietary and other lifestyle modifications can be made to totally eliminate the symptoms, and in some cases, gradually ease patients back into a common diet but without the negative physical responses. Since every patient is different and all individuals deserve unique care, Dr. Leo Hart provides an algorithmic approach to food sensitivity testing and treatment. For years, he has incorporated clinical and functional nutrition at Complete Care, Chiropractic & Wellness Center. The result is an effective and realistic approach that helps patients not only find relief, but an optimal and lasting state of heath.
