Rapid CDIATM Celiac disease kits are intended to detect the celiac disease in aid to diagnosis and protection.
Celiac disease, also spelled coeliac disease, is an autoimmune disorder affecting primarily the small intestine that occurs in people who are genetically predisposed.
Celiac disease, shows a higher incidence in North America, Northern Europe, Australia. Male to female ratio is 1: 1.3 ~ 2.0, and the incidence peak is mainly among children and young people. However, in recent years, the incidence of elderly people increased.
Celiac disease is closely related to eating wheat, a large number of studies have confirmed that wheat gum is possibily one cause of this disease.
Celiac disease patients are always hypersensitive to gluten containing food: barley, wheat, rye, oats, all these may be celiac disease risk factors. With the peptidase in ormal intestinal mucosal cells, gulten can be broken down into smaller molecules of non-toxic substances, but in patients with active celiac disease, the peptidase activity is not sufficient.
