Nima can definitely be helpful to people with Celiac Disease. It's not a cure but may help empower you to make more informed decisions and eat with less anxiety.
Different people react differently to different levels of gluten. Nima is designed to be sensitive at 20 ppm and above, however, Nima can sometimes detect gluten below 20 ppm which is the FDA standard for gluten free. Gluten below that level is technically safe according to the FDA but still may be too much for some. Read more about the 20 ppm and above level of detection.
While it's an extremely helpful and empowering tool, Nima isn't meant to replace what you're already doing or your doctor’s recommendations on how to avoid certain foods.
Newly diagnosed Celiac patients may find Nima extremely helpful in transitioning to a gluten-free diet. The Nima result can help verify unclear ingredient names and allow you to check packaged foods not expressly labeled gluten-free.
Experienced Celiac patients may also find Nima helpful in building confidence in eating outside the home. Many with Celiac disease report social anxiety when eating out so they may avoid traveling or trying new restaurants. Nima can help provide you information to reduce your fears.
