If such symptoms are present, especially when you also have celiac disease, you need to consult your doctor to undergo several diagnostic procedures including:
Computed tomography (CT) scan
A CT scan uses a series of x-rays taken from various angles to produce images of tissues in the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. Those images are combined to give a powerful image. A CT scan radiates radioactive substances during this diagnosis. Your doctor may inject an intravenous contrast material into your vein to provide obvious images of diagnosed organs. If cancer is present, a CT scan can inform the location, shape, and size of the tumor.
Complete blood count (CBC) test
The CBC can calculate the formed elements of blood. If you have symptoms like fatigue and lethargy, your doctor might recommend undergoing this test to help diagnose the cause. The test evaluates the concentration of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets in the blood. The doctor would wipe your skin with alcohol, and then he or she inserts a needle into your vein to take a few milliliters of blood sample. It will be diagnosed in the laboratory.
Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) test
Lactate dehydrogenase or lactic acid dehydrogenase is an enzyme present in all tissues of the body. When disease or injury impairs tissues of the body, they excrete more enzymes into the bloodstream. EATL might increase the amount of LDH in the blood. Like the CBC test, the LDH test is performed by drawing your blood from your vein. Your doctor can soon recognize the cellular damage by diagnosing blood levels in LDH.
