Fortunately, the identification of anti-endomysium immunoglobulin A (EMA-IgA) and anti-tissue transglutaminase immunoglobulin A (tTG-IgA) as markers for celiac disease has provided serological testing of high sensitivity (greater than 90%) and specificity (greater than 95%) for initial screening of children and youth.

Symptoms of gluten sensitivity often mimic those of celiac disease or IBS, though with gluten sensitivity there is no damage to the small intestine, nor do patients develop tissue transglutaminase antibodies that are found in celiac disease.
