And how would I word that, when I call? "Can I schedule a consultation over the phone?" "Why do you need that?" "Cause I can't come to the actual appointment?" "Well, that's not our problem?"

He can run a blood test. The kid would just be stung and go through the agony for nothing, cause he's not making enough antibodies. He hasn't done so the last two tests and neither did any of the other members of his family. It would just be the same old result to confirm the same result everyone else did before her. When does it stop and when is this child believed, that he does indeed have pain? It's not an attack, just my two cents.

I mean, how do you proof, that there is pain with no or less than the limit antibodies?

You don't know if you don't try.  This what I would do in if I were in your situation -  you could mail, or fax might be better, a list of symptoms .  Put on it that you want it in the record of son, date of birth, date of appointment, dr he is seeing.  Call the office and see what works the best. Explain nicely that you can't get off work because of driver shortages.  Kids still need to get to school!  You know his dad will forget something important ( grit your teeth and say that nicely - like its a bit of a joke).   If you have an acting skills, this might be a good time to use them.  Be polite and nice, in this case, it may get you more of what you want.

Are you willing to find out what is wrong with him if it's not Celiac?  There are other reasons that a gluten-free diet can make a non- Celiac feel better.  

He can have pain but not be Celiac.  My toe can hurt but not be broken.  It's not all or nothing.
