What about food allergies or intolerances (for example, eliminate all milk products from your diet)? Parasites? These also mimic Celiac Disease symptoms.

If you have celiac and your antigens are "burned out" you may test negative on the blood tests. Did the tests include total IgA? Also, I don't believe a colonoscopy will tell you anything one way or the other about celiac. They have to see the upper small intestine. I'm glad you have the appointment for further evaluation. I bet they will schedule you for an upper endoscopy.
