    If you're concerned that you might have celiac disease, talk to your healthcare provider. He or she may order a blood test to see if your body is producing antibodies against gluten. If your blood test shows that you're producing antibodies against gluten, you may need a biopsy of the small bowel to confirm a diagnosis of celiac disease.
