Celiac. Usually a couple of blood tests to prescreen and then a scope down the throat into the small intestine to get a biopsy to confirm. You need to be eating gluten for awhile before the biopsy.Lactose. You drink a solution of lactose and they sample your breath usually a few times over the next several hours to see if you have normal, or abnormal levels of gas production.K.

i have had both done. They are nothing. But i did my lactose test thru a naturopath so they test ur resistance. and the way the do it is they expose your body to a vile of it then they press your arm and see how much it moves. It sounds wacky but its crazy how well it works.For Celiac they take like 2 viles of blood.. its nothing just dont look at ur arm .
