Diagnosis of Celiac Disease

Slide 8

updated June 2011

Given the variety of tests that are available for the diagnosis of celiac disease, choosing the tests that are most appropriate for a given patient, not to mention interpreting the results, can be a challenge. The clinical labs at Mayo, working closely with our GI colleagues, have established several algorithms to aid in the diagnosis of celiac disease. This first diagnostic algorithm is designed as a guide to help clinicians better order and interpret test results related to celiac disease. The algorithm itself is not available as an orderable test, but every test outlined within the algorithm is available clinically.

The remaining algorithms, which I will show you in a moment, are laboratory algorithms and are available as orderable clinical tests.
