Hello from JustAnswer.

No, steroids would not show up on the blood tests that check for coeliac disease. There are actually several types of steroids, but none of them will show up on blood tests for coeliac disease.

The blood tests look for specific antibodies, such as antibodies against tissue transglutaminase, that are formed during the course of the disease and the tests will not detect steroids in the system.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
