Stool Test And Celiac

I was diagnosed with celiac disease by positive blood test and biopsy, which I understand to be the most reliable diagnostic tools available to date. There is also a gene blood test which is reliable, but most insurance companies will not cover it.

I'm not sure about the stool test to diagnose celiac disease, but learned at a Celiac conference last year that doctors recommend the blood test and biopsy.

Stool tests are not widely accepted in the medical community yet but I think it's good information. I think that are on to something. I was diagnosed through a blood test. I had the gene test done as well and nope insurance didn't cover <_<
