In this episode, we chat with two renowned gastroenterologists, Dr, Benjamin Lebwohl and Dr. Ritu Verma, about the role genetic tests and biopsies play in diagnosing celiac disease. What can these tests tell us about a patient's health? Are they necessary to diagnose celiac disease? The conversation is followed by a community Q&A. 


Dr. Lebwohl and Dr. Verma are members of The Society for the Study of Celiac Disease (SSCD). The SSCD is a professional organization of physicians, nurses, dietitians, and allied health professionals in the United States, Canada, and Mexico who specialize in the treatment of celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders.
