A simple blood test indicates celiac disease. This is then confirmed through colonoscopy looking to see if the vili are flat - indicating celiac.
The symptoms of the two can be similar though, since both cause severe diahrrea, but most celiac patients react only to gluten heavy foods, while people with crohn's have attacks to more fatty and insoluable fiber foods and just with general inflamation.
Hope this helps.
