If I am on prednisone will that effect the results of the blood test for celiac disease?
Thanks for any info. Larry

While it could affect the result of a biopsy, I do not _think_ it will affect the result of a blood test. You may want to do some additional net research on the subject, however, and try calling a couple of the more reputable labs to ask their staff that question.

I think it would affect a blood test and biopsy as steroids dampen down the 'immune response'.
I would ask a medic though-just to be sure
