Anemia in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptoms Posted September 29, 2009 · Report to Admin Funny, I just posted this in my first question on this forum. Look below! I have been diagnosed with anemia only two weeks ago, with a folic acid deficiency. I don't know if I have been anemic all my life. I do remember being told once in school to put on foundation because I looked so pale and sick. That was quite a few years back I am 24 now. I am not sure if I am celiac, I want a test done but I'm not sure how. I did ask my doctor, but I don't think she listened. The test only confirmed I had anemia. And now I look back, the blood test form didn't mention celiac test. ugh... Celiac Blood testing is an entirely different form, I forget the name of it but others have posted the name here on the board. It cost with insurance about 700.00 so make sure if you have it done your insurance covers it. My parents got approved for the testing and the next thing you know they received a 700.00 bill fore each of them. Ouch!!! after fighting with the insurance company, it got paid because they had the approval from the insurance company prior to the test.
