The problem with this is that the blood tests are NOT as accurate as the doctors think and with even one of them showing positive then it is most likely celiac. Either further testing or a trial gluten-free diet is in order, but I don't recommend the diet until after the biopsy, assuming a biopsy might happen in the future. I personally chose Enterolab after the doctors insisted for two years that my tests were all negative, and the biopsy performed after being gluten-free was negative. Enterolab showed that I not only had the genes, but was producing positive level antibodies to gluten and casein in my intestines, but I did not have severe damage to my intestines (probably since they healed partially while I was gluten-free!).
I hope your mother-in-law doesn't have to be sick for long. Please urge her to get more testing done (or try the diet).
