It is believed that about 3 million Americans have celiac disease and
only about 3% of them know it! There are many varied and subtle symptoms
that may be present and this disease often remains undiagnosed, often
for as long as 11 years. Left unchecked, celiac disease can cause a
vast range of progressive debilitating symptoms and serious complications
that may affect virtually every body system. Please review the celiac screening
form to identify if you have any risk factors
that would indicate the need for an assessment with our Registered Dietitian.
Screening individuals with symptoms and
increased risk factors for celiac disease can
substantially reduce the time it takes to make
a diagnosis. Thirty-minute, customized
assessments are available with our Registered
Dietitian at the Kogan Celiac Center in Livingston,
NJ. Screening blood tests can be performed on
site, if indicated, at the time of the assessment.
Lab results are mailed directly to the patient
(and his or her physician if desired) along with
our clinical guidelines for follow-up care. Medical
diagnosis of celiac disease is confirmed through
an additional GI procedure that may be scheduled
at a later date, after confirming lab results.
If you have indicated one or more positive risk factors
for celiac disease on the screening form please call 973-322-7272 to arrange
for an assessment and screening with our Registered Dietitian.
