Your first test was a low positive, it was the same as my DH. He has felt fantastic, lost bloat and weight and skin problems and has much clear thought processes since he stopped gluten even with this low of a positive.

Are you gluten free? Have you tried it strictly for at least a couple months? If so how did you feel?

Your second test is in the normal range but if you have been gluten-free or gluten light that is a good thing and shows you have been complient with the diet.

The test results could be consistent assuming that the second test was a blood test. The stool test is supposed to be more sensitive or capable of showing a problem earlier than it would show up in a blood test. Also, as already pointed out, if you have eliminated or cut back gluten, that would affect any later test.
