How can you tell if you have a gluten allergy? do you test the blood, the stool, or both?

Gluten allergy: Gluten sensitivity, or celiac disease, can now be detected by a blood test although there are usually some tests done on the intestines to fully diagnose this as there are some changes seen in the intestines.
