Request A Test Offers Discounted Blood Testing for May’s Celiac Awareness Month

May is Celiac Awareness month, so Request A Test is offering discounted Celiac Disease testing

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) May 01, 2012

May is Celiac Awareness month and in honor of this Request a Test, Ltd., a privately held business offering direct-to-consumer lab screenings, is offering discounts on their full line of celiac disease testing.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing many nutrients from food that are essential to one’s health. Specifically, celiac disease is a reaction to gliadin, which is a gluten protein found in foods such as wheat, barley and rye. Celiac disease has some similarities to, but is distinctly different from wheat allergies or gluten intolerance. It is important to take a preliminary test for celiac disease before committing to the invasive small intestine biopsy that is necessary to confirm a diagnosis.

Many experts believe that processed foods, including proteins, cereals, and more, have caused the recent increase in celiac disease cases. Due to this increase, it is imperative that more people are made aware of celiac disease. According to the Mayo Clinic, this disease used to be quite rare. As such, many cases go undiagnosed until it is too late simply because it is not readily thought of when a person experiences symptoms.

May traditionally marks the beginning of the warm weather of spring and the start of the agricultural growing season. With gluten carrying crops such as wheat, barley and rye being planted, it is the perfect time to increase celiac awareness. May also sees the beginning of picnicking and an increase in parties. This means being exposed to food and drink that contain gluten such as sandwich buns, kielbasa, bratwurst and even beer.

During the month of May, Request A Test is offering a 10% discount off of every test and test package in its celiac testing category. To receive the discount, use the following discount code: Celiac10.

“For an individual showing gastrointestinal or other symptoms, knowing whether or not they could be prone to or have celiac disease is not only a relief but could be a lifesaver,” says Noelle Perez, President of Request A Test. “We offer testing that can detect antibodies that are found in an sizable number of celiac disease cases.”

Request A Test offers convenient and non-invasive options for celiac testing. The process is fast and simple. First, choose and order from Request A Test’s celiac disease tests and testing packages. Then, go to one of the many local testing labs located across the country at your convenience. Finally, you will receive your results through your online account or by phone, mail or fax. Many tests results are available in as little as one business day
