    Hi Evant, welcome to the Boards.

    Yes, testing specifically for Celiac Disease is different, but you should confirm with your doctor's office.

    Re: Celiacs or gluten intolerance test

    There are specific antibodies that test for celiac disease. If positive, you have it and must remain gluten free in diet. However, some people who do not have celiac disease are gluten intolerant, in other words, eating gluten causes uncomfortable symptoms like excess gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, etc. The ANA test does not test for celiac disease or gluten intolerance. It is often positive in people with lupus and other related autoimmune diseases, but celiac disease and lupus can coexist. So I would look at symptoms and discuss with your Dr. what tests might be most helpful. Since these are blood tests, they can be combined in any number of ways at one time to get the most information from one blood draw.
