Is it possible to still have celiac disease if you have tested negative for a gluten allergy?

Question by rona: Is it possible to still have celiac disease if you have tested negative for a gluten allergy?
A month ago I had a RAST blood test done for the following allergens: wheat and gluten. My results came back as slightly intolerant to wheat and negative for gluten. What I’m wondering is if this mean I’m in the clear or would I need a different test to make sure? I’d ask the allergy clinic about it but it’s a small office and the doctor is always really busy. —- Also, I read somewhere that if someone is intolerant to something, they can eventually re-introduce it back into their system after a substantial amount of time.. is this true and if it is, about how long should it be? —- Thanks 🙂
If I should be tested in a different manner who should I make an appointment with? An allergy clinic? or would I need to see a certain specialist for that?

Yes, because celiac’s is NOT a gluten ALLERGY at all. It’s a Gluten Intolerance, and the two are different things. They have similar symptoms, but are infact very different. I am gluten intolerant, but do not have celiac’s disease, nor do I have a wheat allergy.
