Hello. I would like to be tested for celiac disease, but I am unsure of which tests I need to ask for. My dr. is a family physician, and I am not sure how educated he is on this disease. I figured the more prepared I was at my next appointment, the better off I would be. Three weeks ago I had blood work done, and it showed very low levels of B12. I have started on injections and feel much better. I have a history of stomach issues, migraines, and generally feeling ill. Any advice on how to proceed from here would be much appreciated.

I am printing out the fact sheets for my doctor (follow-up tests) and the Pediatrcian for the tests for at risk family members. I'm hoping this will help.
