What is this test?

Understand your Symptoms
Coeliac disease symptoms vary from mild to severe and can fluctuate over time. Mild cases may not have noticeable symptoms, often detected incidentally through other testing. However, the common symptoms include:
- Abdominal pain
It can also cause other symptoms, such as unexplained weight loss, fatigue, and itchy skin, rash. Coeliac can cause malabsorption and malnutrition. Common deficiencies include iron, vitamin B12, and folate.
It's important to discuss your symptoms, medical history, and any concerns with a healthcare professional who can determine if a coeliac blood test is appropriate for you. The blood test is the initial step in diagnosing coeliac disease, but a confirmed diagnosis typically requires further evaluation, such as an intestinal biopsy.
