Antibodies may still show up. If its positive, then its definitely positive. If its negative, then no, it doesn't mean a true negative.

One of the nutritionists at a leading Celiac center said that there are when a Celiac starts the diet, changes to the damage in the intestine caused by Celiac start to happen within a week. The damage in the intestine is correlated with the antibody blood test. The goal of going on the diet is to stop you body from producing antibodies.

Just because it isn't as reliable doesn't mean you can't get a positive. It just means that a negative doesn't rule it out to the standards a negative would for an older child.
