:Trisha, I had been having intestinal problems for about 4 years and was diagnosed with IBS. When my symptoms got worse, I went to a gastro doctor who half way through taking my history said she thought I had celiac disease. There is a blood test which confirms this and then a follow-up endoscopic exam with a tissue sample to further confirm this. The test will only be accurate if you are still eating foods with wheat and gluten, so if you want to be tested, continue to eat these foods. If you want more info on the type of blood test, let me know. I say this, because a lot of doctors do not know how to test for this. I would also recommend that you try to find a doctor who is treating celiac patients.
Take care.
