I recently had a lot of blood work done to look for auto-immune disorders including ANA testing (no celiac specific tests were done though). Everything came out normal. If celiac is an auto-immune disorder would my normal test results rule out celiac as a diagnosis?

Gluten free since 2010 when it was suggested that my vertigo/dizzy problems may be from gluten. Tested negative for DH in April of 2012. However I'm not convinced I don't have DH as pictures and description pretty much match what I have.
11/2012 tested positve for 1 of the 2 celiac genes

Not necessarily. Celiac is a sneaky thing- sometimes it just doesn't show up in bloodwork.

You should still get the full panel of celiac bloodwork done- ttg IGA, ttg IGG, total IGA, DGP and EMA

My bloodwork for Celiac was also negative (i.e, normal) but my endoscopy proved that I had Celiac disease, flattening of villi, etc.
