It is often misdiagnosed because its symptoms are very similar to a number of other gut problems, including irritable bowel syndrome. It is important that people are screened for coeliac disease with a blood test before a diagnosis of other gut problems in order to rule it out first. The charity is working towards a future where the scale of underdiagnosis can be tackled and reduced. The hope is that Coeliac Awareness Week , which runs from 13 to 19 May, will make more people alert to how their body feels and lead them to seek clinical advice to find out whether their symptoms could be undiagnosed coeliac disease.
Ultimately, though, the misery that can be caused by coeliac disease can largely be avoided by following a strict gluten-free diet, meaning foods containing the protein — including wheat, rye, barley and oats — are out. One in 10 people and that is likely to also include those with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, which can trigger equally unpleasant symptoms in the UK now avoid gluten.

What I mean is that when you make a fuss to your waiter about needing a gluten-free meal, and then she sees you taking bread from the bread basket, your waitress will doubt that your gluten disorder and other gluten disorders are real. I compel you to take a stand. Choose a side. To me, health is wealth. Many people follow a gluten-free diet, but still experience painful symptoms or everyday discomforts. Once you order the test, simply follow the instructions to test your urine or stool for gluten.
Please note that the stool test is 10 times more sensitive at detecting gluten than the urine test because gluten is mostly cleared from the body through the bowels. The Gluten Detective recommends following up a negative urine test the next day with the stool test to catch anything the urine test may have missed. The stool test will detect even a small crumb of bread consumed over previous days. I took both the urine and stool test after suspecting gluten exposure one night — both tests came back negative.
