Default Gluten Intolerance and Negative Test Results

Robb's blog and podcasts have many testimonials as to how removing grains, legumes and dairy have completely reversed their IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, and assorted other GI problems, even though they have tested negative for Celiac. I know that it's completely within the realm of probability that even if you've tested negative for Celiac, there may still be an underlying gluten intolerance, but I don't think I've ever seen an explanation as to why that is. Can somebody shed some light?

A friend of mine has serious GI issues, has been in and out of the doctors office for years, is negative for all the tests and they don't know what's wrong with him. I suggested that he cut out gluten/dairy/beans, but he responded with, "they tested me for that, i'm not celiac or lactose intolerant." I asked him what he had to lose to try it my way for a month, but he's not ready to listen yet. I figured having an explanation would help my case.

The celiac test tests for certain antibodies that are released when gluten appears in your system, right? How would the antibodies be absent if you're intolerant?

(this information would also be helpful for my NP aunt that continues her passive aggression whenever she notices me avoiding gluten)

Thanks guys!
