That's a negative Enterolab panel, which is rather rare. You're probably not celiac. Your genes are DQ4 and DQ6. There are some DQ6 folks who don't tolerate gluten and I think we have a couple unusual DQ6 celiacs around the board. For your info, the usual celiac genes are DQ2 and DQ8.

Most importantly, how do you feel on the gluten-free diet? It's much more important and far more accurate to try the diet and see how you feel if you suspect gluten sensitivity. Also with the negative Enterolab panel it's worth looking into fructose malabsorption or SIBO for the GI trouble.
