Limited: Blood tests will detect antibodies to helicobacter suggesting a bacterial infection that causes gastitis and peptic ulers, changes in some hormones associated with stomach disorders, some tumors but usualy not in early stages, and autoantibdies that may affect the stomach. A history and physical examination, and endoscopy may be needed for a full workup.
