In brief: ?which test ?

Testing for celiac varies.
There are blood tests, which can show positive with small amounts of gluten intake. (1/10 of a slice of bread)The most dramatic and accepted confirmatory test for celiac disease is a small intestine biopsy. The biopsy test would be most reliable when someone has had a gluten challenge.
