How can doctors tell the difference between Crohn's/IBD and celiac disease?

I'm looking for (research-based) information that explains how doctors can diagnose Crohn's vs celiac disease.
For example, say a Crohn's diagnosis was made from barium, flexible sigmoidoscopies, colonoscopies and various symptoms over the years. What markers would show that this is Crohn's and not celiac? Or vice versa? I can find comparisons of Crohn's and ulcerative colitis, but I can't find anything that explains how Crohn's is different from celiac disease.
