Can I still have celiac disease if a skin test showed negative for wheat allergy?

In brief: Absolutely
Celiac disease is not an allergy, so the wheat allergy test is worthless here.
There are blood tests that indicate the possibility for this condition, which is a problem of digestion. The best test, unfortunately, is a biopsy.

In brief: Yes
Celiac disease is an immune reaction to a particular part of wheat.
It is not an allergy to wheat. Testing for ige to wheat is not how celiac is diagnosed. A blood test and / or endoscopy and biopsy are required to diagnose celiac disease. Talk to your doctor.
