When is it needed?
Coeliac disease tests are done when someone has symptoms suggesting coeliac disease, malnutrition, and/or malabsorption - such as diarrhoea, abdominal pain, weakness, fatigue, weight loss, and joint pain. They may be done as part of an investigation of anaemia or osteoporosis. In children, coeliac disease tests may be ordered when a child exhibits gastrointestinal symptoms, delayed development, short stature and/or a failure to thrive.
