  1. My 15 year old daughter has been c/o stomach bloating and pain around her umbilicus for the last year, but worsening this summer. She also has stools that float. Her medical hx is unremarkable, except for ankle surgery over the summer for a broken ankle. Well to make a long story short, I could not get an appointment with a gastro guy for over a month, so i started her on a gluten free diet. My sister has celiac so i am very familiar with the diet. By day three on the diet she was improved. She was feeling great. I ended up getting an appointment due to a cancellation and brought her in a week later. Her genetic markers came back negative, so celiac is ruled out. Since she has been on the diet she feels great. When she accidently ingests gluten, she becomes sick. Her doc said she has IBS. Can anyone explain? Can you have celiac with negative genetic markers. HELP!! If she does not have celiac, why does she feel so great on the gluten free diet? Thanks Leigh
