In brief: Yes

Testing for gluten intolerance, the cause of celiac disease, is usually first done by blood testing for anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (ttga) or anti-endomysium antibodies (ema).
If these tests are inconclusive, your doctor may recommend additional blood tests or an intestinal biopsy.

In brief: Sorta

The usual blood tests are not that accurate.
We believe them if positive but not if negative. Blood igg may be helpful. I also like to test genetics for gluten intolerence.
