The same thing happened with all three of my kids. Positive IgG, negative IgA. I wasnot able to get the testing the doctor wanted through Promethius labs, so we ended up testing them through Enterolab. http://www.enterolab.com
My boys both have non-celiac gluten intolerance and my daughter and I are both Celiac with low levels of damage. This was surprising to me, as sick as I have been all my life I thought I would test positive on the blood tests, but it just didn't work out that way. The kids had quite a few symptoms as well. We are all gluten free now and all of us are doing much better.
Hang in there, and remember that you are doing a great job trying to find out what is wrong with your children, so you can help them be healthy.

Thank you SO much.
Which tests did you have done at Enterolab? I just can't afford to have all of those tests done.
How will the tests show if they have celiac, or just non-celiac gluten intolerance?
Also, I have been feeding them a gluten-free diet because it is just too risky IMO to have gluten in the house with my 2 yr old recovering. Should I keep giving my other kids gluten for the GI dr in July? Heck, for that matter, how can I be sure my 2 yr old (whose IgA WAS positive) really has Celiac-- should I put her back on gluten too for the GI dr in July?

I'm leaning more and more towards Enterolab, but I just don't know which tests to get. I would love to get all of the tests done, but $300 a child is not an option.
