Re: Coeliacs disease

Coeliac disease is an intolerance to the gluten in Wheat.
They used to do a biopsy to confirm a diagnosis......now I think they do some bloodtests to screen for antibodies - they also check for anaemia.
If the tests come back positive then they may do a jejunal biopsy to confirm it.
I hope this helps a bit.
You do definitely need a visit to see the doc Shaz.
