Are the labs done at the same place? 


Have you had her thyroid tested?


If those answers are yes, I would perhaps consider a gluten-free house over taking away Starbucks.  She could get a prebottled drink when she went.

No, is should not be any different for kids. One thing in a face of several others shouldn't exclude a DX. Has nothing do with being a kid or not.


This isn't MY opinion.  This was from THE celiac guy in the US.  I'm not trying to debate anything just pointing out that they often do have different standards.

Any doc worth his/her salt will DX someone based on several signs symptoms and test results and not exclude a DX because of one unexpected test result. So, if he's having Celiac symptoms and a positive TTG that should be enough to know it's Celiac. 


I will warn that when dealing with kids, even the top Celiac Dr's see this differently.  I don't see the childs age posted but if they are younger then it's seen as a different ballgame in some regards.

You may be able to have Chicago look at your slides. You would need to call them. They (most likely) will not consult over the phone. There are legal issues with insurance billing and having to actually see the patient. Though once you see them you should be able to do other stuff over the phone.

Chipotle.  My DS is allergic to dairy and has Celiac and eats there from time to time.
