    hi there, my name is antonette an i need some help, do you know any laboratory who can do celiac testing without referral from a doctor??? I suspect that my 3 year old son is sensitive to gluten, but i have been to several pediatricians and none of them recommended blood tests to check celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Even though I enumerated symptoms similar to celiac disease. Today we visited another doctor because he have rashes all over his body since yesterday but only prescribed anti-allergy medicine without any blood tests done. I even requested him if total IgA test can be done but he denied saying rashes does not always point to gluten allergy. I also contacted a german clinic listed in your website but was told I should bring him to a pediatrician. Thank you.

      I suggest you make an appointment with Dr Loubser, he is a paediatrician use to dealing with Celiac patients. Also listed on our website. You can do the testing independently through XY clinic, but for a small child I really advice you to do this with the support of a good family Dr. Dr Loubser will guide you. Good Luck! Linda

      i can’t but thank you for the great effort and work you put into this…many people have probably thought about doing something similar to support the cause but only a few did…I am a diabetic and it was hard to adapt in the beginning, but when i read about celiac disease I couldn’t but imagine how much more difficult it is to live with the disease…YET…it’s possible with the right knowledge and resources… i’m making a study and your website provided me with so much information and data I could use….I am just wondering if you could possibly provide me with the numbers of people suffering from celiac around the UAE and where can I get those numbers from….you are highly appreciated.

    Hi..just stumbled upon this amazing website! I have been hypothyroid for the past 16 yrs…since moving to DXb 4 yrs ago, my symptoms started getting worse..I have been gluten free last 2 months and the difference I feel mentally and physically is amazing. Ofcourse it is quite hard, esp as I am frm India and man I miss those naans rotis and parathas! But its worth the positive health I feel for it.

      Neelam, you can contact admins via the facebook page. Please do not go gluten free until your son has had the celiac profile done, the intolerance test is not the one you need.

    My sister’s daughter is 5 years old. She was diagnosed with coeliac disease and acid reflux when she was two. My sister wants another baby now. Is it possible that the other child can also have the same disease?
    Tests revealed that her father possess the genes for this disease though he shows no symptoms. Thanks.
