@jddh So...did the restricted diet you were going to implement work (FODMAP or Whole Foods)? I recall that you were mis-diagnosed at one point with refractory celiac disease, but it was later determined that you were getting trace amounts of gluten in your diet. If you are not catching colds, I assume that you have healed from the damages of celiac disease? I hope so!!! ?

Peter is correct. You do have a positive so that warrants further investigation. Here is a link supporting our comments: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-raised-dgp-igg-levels-an-early-sign-of-celiac-disease/ http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf Does she have celiac disease? You will never know for sure without an endoscopy. Even then, there is a chance the biopsies are negative, but keep in mind that she might just be starting to develop celiac disease or that the damage was not captured (the small intestine is the size of a tennis court if spread out). Personally, I tested negative on all but the DGP IgA, yet I had moderate to severe intestinal damage. The celiac blood tests are good, but they do not catch all celiacs, some celiacs can even test negative to ALL the blood tests. Consider yourself fortunate that your doctor ordered several of the tests and not just the screening TTG IgA (very good, keeps cost down, but does not catch all). The DGP is the preferred test in small children. I do not know why it caught me because I am old, but it did! Confusing, isn't it? I wish there was an easier way to diagnose, but we have to work with what we have available to us.

Thank you for your reply, though it's not necessarily what I wanted to hear, it is what I was thinking.
