Recurring gastric complaints, like a bloated stomach, abdominal pain or diarrhoea – often after meals – may be caused by an intolerance to gluten, a protein which is found in different cereal-based foods, such as bread, noodles or pizza. In its most serious form – celiac disease – more notable weight loss may occur, as well as signs of deficiency or even skin diseases. Using the Veroval® self-test "Gluten intolerance” from HARTMANN you can quickly and safely find out if your complaints are being caused by gluten intolerance, and can therefore be reduced by a change in diet. All you need is a drop of blood from your fingertip and ten minutes of your time.
