At any rate, unless you were to go back on the gluten, any further tests for it wouldn't be very conclusive. There is a genetic test you can have done to see if there is a chance that you could develop it.
Even if you did go back on it, there is no say whether or not you have celiac. It could just as easily be NCGI (non-celiac gluten intolerence) which mimics many of the same symptoms that celiac has (outside of actual damage).

Most of your tests look really good, so chances are you don't have celiac or thyroiditis. celiac disease does have a 25% false negative blood test rate (approximately) so there is a chance you are one of the minority.
Either way, it's probably a good thing to go gluten-free for at least a few months, a half year is better.
BTW, many around here have astonishing stories of "unexplained" liver function recovery after going gluten-free. Try not to jump to the worst conclusion. Chances are it's not cancer, and your diet (gluten) has affected your liver.
... And make sure those potato chips are gluten-free. Best wishes. Let us know how it goes.
