Celiac Disease Foundation recently administered a survey to gauge community interest in using a simple in-home urine or stool test to monitor gluten intake.
Through our iCureCeliac® patient registry, we have found that 53% of people with celiac disease continue to experience symptoms while on a strict gluten-free diet. The most common reason for persistent symptoms is unintentional ingestion of gluten. One way to determine gluten intake is to use an in-home test.
We are pleased to present our findings from the survey.

Launched in March 2016, iCureCeliac® is a patient-powered research network (patient registry) designed to help researchers better understand, and ultimately cure, celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity. iCureCeliac® allows patients to contribute medical information and their experiences living with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity to advance life-changing initiatives in research, education, and advocacy. Your participation will help discover new ways to improve patient lives through better diagnostic tools, treatments for cross-contact and gluten consumption, governmental policy changes, and access to new and innovative clinical trials nationwide, which may one day cure celiac disease.
