Celiac disease (gluten sensitive enteropathy) is an auto-immune, permanent intolerance to specific peptides of gluten-containing cereals (including wheat, rye and barley), that is characterized by chronic inflammation of the small intestinal mucosa that may result in progressive atrophy of intestinal villi in genetically susceptible individuals. Celiac Disease is often misdiagnosed and if left untreated can cause significant discomfort as well as lead to serious long term complications. The Rexall pharmacist is in a unique position to identify and recommend Celiac disease screening tests to appropriate patients.
Rexall is pleased to partner with GlutenPro in exclusively offering the Biocard Celiac Test - a rapid and reliable method to test for Celiac disease at home.
The BioCard Celiac Test Kit is a safe, affordable, and easy to use test that can be done in the comfort of your own home. This 10 minute test is as accurate as one you would have done in a hospital laboratory. The BioCard Celiac Test Kit is available for purchase at your local Rexall Pharmacy.
