What Tests Do They Typically Run In Australia For Celiac Disease?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I remember reading many years ago that we in Australia don't test for all the same genes that are tested for in other countries.  Is this still the case?  

And in terms of antibody testing, are there standard tests run or do some Dr's do less comprehensive testing? I'm a little bit worried about requesting a screening if there is a chance they don't include all the possible tests to ensure a correct result.  I have suspected Celiac disease for myself for a good 8 years now and I suppose I'd be really put off if it weren't the cause of my issues.

I'd love some advice.  I am seeing a Haemotologist (not sure if they're the right people to do Celiac screenings) for iron issues and wondered if I should ask him to do the screening for me.
