How are you tested for Celiac? I had blood test several years ago and they were normal. I believe I have a gluten intolerance, but is there a way to find out?

Hi!

These are the list of celiac blood tests which if positive, should be followed up with an endoscopy.

There are no tests for a gluten sensitivity or intolerance -- you have to first rule out celiac disease which can develop at any time during your life and has over 200 symptoms.

Good Luck!
