Celiac testing is sometimes ordered to screen for asymptomatic celiac disease in those who have close relatives with celiac disease (about 10% of these patients have or will develop celiac disease) and/or in those who have other autoimmune diseases.
Celiac disease tests are ordered when a patient has symptoms suggesting malnutrition, celiac disease, and/or malabsorption - such as diarrhea, weakness, fatigue, weight loss, abdominal pain, and joint pain. They may also be ordered as part of an investigation of osteoporosis, anemia, infertility, or seizures (certain types are linked to celiac disease). Celiac disease tests may be ordered in children when a child exhibits gastrointestinal symptoms, delayed development, short stature and/or a failure to thrive.
