I have not heard that about paper.
Does your son get his levels tested regularly to make sure they are going down? I believe this is how Dr.s check to see if you are compliant with the gluten-free diet. This might be a good way to monitor him.
Something to consider, is he eating a lot of processed gluten-free foods? It might be a good idea to cut those out for a while to see if he gets better. Dairy also can be a problem for some.
Does the rest of the family eat gluten? Does he have his own cookware, utensils, toaster etc.? He could possibly be getting cross contaimination (CC) at home or school.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

Tired of such limited food options? Think about your pets. They eat the same food every single day of their lives! So suck it up.

At home, you may need to take the whole family gluten-free. Sometimes there are too many crumbs and traces of gluten in a normal kitchen for celiacs. At a bare minimum, stop bringing flour into your house and make sure you are very careful with breads and cereal. He should have separate condiments, and you need a gluten-free cutting board for his food.

My daughter was seeming to have gluten reactions. She was just getting sicker and I was losing my mind trying to hunt down hidden gluten sources. Finally she was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitus. So I would advice you to get back to a ped. gastro. and start keeping a food journal to see if it is another food intolerance, allergy, or other reaction.
We are using a Public Charter Cyber School to adjust to her illness and the need for her to avoid "trigger food" cross contamination. You can do a search for your state's availability for cyber school if that can work with your family situation.
