Celiac Disease: Information and Tests

RedRiver Health & Wellness > Diagnoses > Celiac Disease: Information and Tests

Do you get an upset stomach whenever you eat bread, pasta, or any wheat-based food product? Then you may be suffering from Celiac disease.

RedRiver Health and Wellness Center provides diagnostics and therapy plans for people with autoimmune conditions like celiac disease. We offer our help to Celiac disease sufferers by offering therapy and management plans to ease the symptoms and to improve their quality of life.

A Digestive and Autoimmune Disorder

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects the digestive tract. People with Celiac disease are very sensitive to gluten, which is a type of protein that is responsible for the elastic texture of dough and other products made of cereal grains. Cereal grains include wheat, barley, and rye.

Celiac disease causes inflammation in the small intestines, which over time, damages the lining. This may prevent the absorption of nutrients and cause nutritional deficiencies.

Symptoms of Celiac disease may include:

  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Bloating
  • Gas and flatulence
  • Swollen ankles
  • Anemia
  • Fatigue
  • Skin rashes
  • Vitamin K deficiency
  • Excessive bruising and bleeding
  • Growth problems in children

Diagnosing the Symptoms

RedRiver Health and Wellness Center provides diagnostic help for Celiac disease sufferers. Using our autoimmune disease tests, we can identify what triggers inflammation and find out if you, indeed, have Celiac disease.

We endeavor to manage the symptoms by recommending dietary and lifestyle changes, which may include going on a gluten-free diet. Each one of our patients has unique needs, which is why we work hard to provide personalized medical care for each case.

If you suspect that you have Celiac disease, contact us today for help.

About Us

One of the main goals at RedRiver Health and Wellness Center is to work with patients to improve their health, wellbeing, and quality of life. The RedRiver Health and Wellness Center team is passionate about helping ailing patients achieve optimal health, and we truly care about the success of each and every patient.

RedRiver chiropractic physicians are great advocates for prescribing physicians and endocrinologists. In fact, many of our patients see their prescribing physician(s) more frequently while under our care than they would otherwise. Our goal is not to replace our patients’ primary care physicians and specialists, but to complement their care by providing patients with nutrition, diet, lifestyle and educational support and strategies. This way, patients can learn to manage their symptoms more efficiently. We have developed rewarding relationships with many prescribing physicians across the country, and we strive to continue to building relationships with MDs, DOs, NPs, and NMDs. When health professionals can work together for the benefit of the patient’s health, it becomes a win/win situation for the one who matters most—the patient.
