Gluten Sensitivity: What to Do First If You Suspect You're Sensitive to Gluten

Gluten sensitivity can have milder symptoms than Celiac disease. If you feel you may have one or the other, it's very important to get a blood test for Celiac disease first. You need to have been consuming gluten for at least two months for the test to be accurate. The test is typically covered by insurance. 

If you test positive, a strict gluten-free diet is a must. If the test is negative but you feel your body reacts to gluten, trust your gut instinct and go the gluten-free route with the help of a Registered Dietitian for a few weeks and see if you feel the difference. But the test comes first!
