No Celiac For My Mom

We just got my mom's celiac results back and she does not have it!  Her scores are actually very low- mine were in the hundreds and she had 4's and 5's.  This came as a surprise because when she ate gluten, she complained of stomach pains.  My dad had low gluten scores on the other test (the first one I took that tested for lots of different foods) and my mom does not have celiac, so we suspect that one of them had the gene but it was never triggered.  Or, both of them had it which could expain why my scores are so high.  Because there are two different genes that cause celiac, we don't know if i have dq8 or dq2.  Maye I have both!
