The thyroid tests are the TSH and T4, correct? If so, her ped. tested those and both came back in the normal range, though on the low end of the normal scale. However, I have read that blood tests for thyroid are also frequently innacurate.

The only other odd test result she had was for the Epstein-Barr Viurs Antibody Panel. The ped. didn't know what to make of it.

I have to wonder if the GI doctor was just focusing more on the genetic test results. If he believes that all Celiacs must have one of those two genes, I can see why he might say she doesn't have Celiac. Maybe something was lost in communicating through a 3rd party....
