If celiac disease is suspected, there are a number of assessments that can be carried out to confirm diagnosis:

For people who have been diagnosed with celiac disease, this means a gluten-free diet for the rest of their lives.
Your doctor will also take some preventive measures for your future health including blood tests, vaccination, and screening tests.
