In brief: Celiac disease
Abdominal symptoms - whether constipation, pain, diarrhea - aggravated by wheat ingestion is surely suggestive of a gluten intolerance.
There are various blood tests that can be used for screening- gliadin, endomyseal, transglutaminase antibodies. Gold standard for diagnosis is still felt to be an upper endoscopy with biopsy of the small bowel.
