In my opinion the reason all of our blood work comes back negative and the stool panel is positive is because the stool panel tests are more sensitive than blood and it takes time for diseases to show up in blood and it takes time for gluten to damage the villi, I guess it just takes longer for some of us .
If you do not feel comfortable going through Dr. Fine at Enterolab you could always put your son on a strict gluten-free diet for a couple of months, if he improves he obviously has a problem with gluten.

Personally, I don't get too hung up on what medicine's absolutes. These are the same people who recommend a gluten challenge for diagnosis. The equivalent in heart disease would be to eat butter and beef to see if they can detect a heart attack.
