Dr. Rodney Ford, pediatrician and author of The Gluten Syndrome, provides us with an excellent and easy-to-follow video that tells us how to know if we need a gluten test.
This short presentation explains which symptoms to look for and tells you the tests you need to to request to find out if gluten is making you sick.
Dr. Ford estimates up to one third of people with chronic diseases are being affected by gluten and sums up why people do not ask to be tested. "We are so used to being sick that we don't know we're sick." People think they have always been this way, so they do not know to ask.
He then establishes a great litmus test to determine who should be tested - "People who are sick, tired or grumpy should be tested."
