How to get diagnosed?

 If you are worried that you might have some of the symptoms of coeliac disease, make an appointment to visit your GP who will arrange for you to have a simple blood test.

If the blood test is positive for coeliac disease, your GP will normally arrange for you to have a biopsy in an out patient clinic. In a biopsy, a small section of the lining of the bowel is taken and a Gastroenterologist will assess the results.

It is important that you continue to include gluten in your diet for your diagnosis to be confirmed.
