Weak Positive Results

30 January 2013 - 01:31 PM

So my 17 y/o daughter has an endoscopy scheduled in two weeks. These are her lab results, they seem confusing as to a clear diagnosis.

tTG IGA 5 - <4 normal
Gliadin (deamidated) AB (IGA) 7- normal <20
Immunoglobulin A 298 - 81-463 normal

Is this enough to call her celiac?
I'm not thrilled about a possible diagnosis as she will be moving away for college and I'm not sure how she's gonna deal w a limited diet when she's out w friends. She doesn't like pasta and doesn't really eat a lot of bread but I want an accurate endoscopy result, how much gluten is needed to get an accurate biopsy result?
