Your story is like so many others.... its hard to understand the medical field....& as they are getting better they still don't have all the knowledge yet ........Your daughter at the very least sounds like she is gluten intolerant/sensitive...if she truly needs confirmation then she should consume eating gluten & lots of it & be tested again after several months of consuming gluten. Honestly, I couldn't do that because after going gluten-free I felt so good it didn't matter if a doctor put his seal of approval ... Just to set the record straight I was dx'd in several ways......but many feel so good they just don't care to subject their bodies to gluten ever again...
With that many in the family being gluten-free I agree that a gluten-free household would be ideal...& make it easier for the cook!
And in my neck of the woods its hard to get a dx's , most docs want to take out the gallbladder first......then within a couple of years after that they say oh you may have celiac or gluten sensitive!!!! DUH!!!!!
So I would say to your daughter she knows how she feels with wheat & without wheat... Make a choice & live your life... If it were a younger school age child I think a confirmation is necessary to get through the public school system... many colleges now offer gluten-free foods so that shouldn't be a big problem if she chooses a college that has the gluten-free section....
And I think you answered your own question"" she feels better after going gluten-free, skin is healing"

I had a lot of the same symptoms (gallbladder, tummy troubles, skin issues). Was she gluten free when she was tested? That might be why it came back like that.

Oh, feel for you. The real gold mine test for celiac /gluten problems is a positive response to diet and it sounds like your daughter had that. Welcome to the gluten free club! Thanks for supporting your family members; I know, you have to you're the Mom.
I had eczema and mono. I never seemed to recover from the mono-until now. I can't help thinking that mono is something you usually get when you are rundown. Gluten can run ya down.
Get that family well,
I hope your test results will be helpful and motivating.
