Myasthenia gravis may be diagnosed with a range of different tests. A blood test looking for the presence of disease-causing antibodies is the main way of diagnosing myasthenia gravis. In some cases, additional nerve-muscle function tests or other evaluations may be necessary to reach a definitive diagnosis of myasthenia gravis.
