No, definite chance: Blood tests for wheat allergy measure IgG and/or IgE antibodies to proteins in wheat (which may include gluten) but not everyone with celiac disease will have these antibodies. The best blood test is IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase. If you really want to rule out celiac disease you should get that test- but only after eating gluten!
