Gluten intolerance testing kit for easy home use - take this test now and you could live a healthier tomorrow!
Biotech Biocard Celiac Test is a rapid and reliable home test for the detection of celiac disease from a fingertip blood sample. Results are identified in just 10 minutes and are as reliable as hospital blood tests (96%).
Celiac disease is intolerance to gluten; a protein found in wheat, rye and barley.
What is gluten sensitivity (Celiac disease) gluten intolerance, and what are gluten problems?
In short, Celiac disease is a lifelong condition which if left undiagnosed and untreated exposes you to an increased risk of developing osteoporosis, infertility and cancer.
If you have celiac disease, the presence of gluten in your diet causes your body’s immune system to attack the tiny, finger like projections (villi) which line your small intestine. In celiac disease these villi become inflamed and then flattened causing a reduction in the absorption of essential nutrients from your food such as calcium and iron, which leads to a wide range of symptoms.
Symptoms of Celiac disease or gluten intolerance include:
- abdominal pain
- nutritional deficiency
- changes in appetite
- burning rash
- hair loss
- bone and joint pain
- weight loss
- skin problems
- mouth ulcers
Left undiagnosed and untreated there is an increased risk of infertility, osteoporosis and intestinal cancer. If you are diagnosed with Celiac disease, early screening of your children, siblings, and parents is important, as their risk increases too.

- Good, if you can use a lancet Review by Dill
If in any doubt - AT ALL - I would urge you to take the test and find out for sure. I wish I had done it years ago, but I had to go through all the ups and downs to be able to get here and pinpoint what my problem has been. My younger brother is also going to test for gluten intolerance too because of wind, bloating and foul smelling poo. (Posted on 27 March 2015)
I have checked the information and contraindications that come with this product and it does not mention an age limit for this test to be carried out. It does advise that a final diagnosis should be given by a doctor before starting a gluten free diet.
