Is genetic testing available for celiac disease?

Genetic testing is available for celiac disease. However, genetic testing is often not required for a diagnosis of this condition.

You can find information about labs that offer genetic testing for celiac disease through the Genetic Testing Registry (GTR). The intended audience for the GTR is health care providers and researchers. Therefore, people with specific questions about genetic testing for celiac disease should speak with their health care provider or a genetics professional.
