Overview

A Laboratory work-up is usually non significant as the diagnosis is dependent on the symptoms and the radiological tests. Laboratory findings in patients with the diagnosis of achalasia may include microcytic hypochromic anemia and vitamin deficiencies.

Laboratory Findings

A Laboratory workup is not necessary for the diagnosis of achalasia because the diagnosis is dependent on the symptoms and radiological tests.
