Re: How is Celiac Disease diagnosed?
There is a blood test to diagnose Celiac but it is usually followed up by a biopsy of the villi in the small intestines because it is damaged and causes the problems!!
As you may know Celiac is caused by being intolerant to gluten that is in wheat, barley, rye and oat --- including their many --many by products.
It is sometimes difficult to recognize because the symptoms are similar to IBS, anemia and ulcers.
Celiac is inherited --- so if a member of your family has it then chances are you need to be tested.
