In brief: Blood tests, biopsy
Celiac disease is diagnosed by finding certain types on antibodies on a blood test.
A small intestine biopsy can be used for diagnosis. There is also a blood test to see if a person has the genes that are seen in celiac disease patients.

In brief: Medical tests
Usually through blood work, however "gold standard" is numerous biopsies from the duodenum (small intestine) during an upper endoscopy.
