Recommendations for suspected Coeliac Disease

Pre-referral investigations – full blood count and tissue transglutaminase IgA antibody (commonly abbreviated to IgA-tTG)

Referral Threshold – if positive IgA-tTG, refer for duodenal biopsy. Also refer if negative IgA-tTG but strong clinical suspicion
