The historic methods to identify these conditions will be discussed, as well as more recent comprehensive testing options that reduce false negatives and that accurately reflect gluten sensitivity identification consistent with the frequency of clinical observations seen by practitioners. Recent advances in laboratory medicine have identified accurate testing for not only gliadin (the primary test used to identify gluten sensitivity), also for gluten cross-reactivity, deamidated gliadin, gluteomorphins, multiple gluten epitopes, and gluten immunochemistry. The clinical aspects that support individuals to reclaim their health with an emphasis on diet and nutrition will be emphasized.
