Today, the mission is to drive research to improve diagnosis rates, treatments, and overall quality of life for people with celiac disease. "The gluten-free diet is an incomplete and unreliable treatment, and yet it's all we've got," Bast explains. "No other options have been developed since gluten was identified as the culprit in celiac disease some 70 years ago. We deserve better. We need a 21st century research agenda."

If she was actually diagnosed, by a skin biopsy, for DH, then she has Celiac. NO need for further testing.

i find that i can tolerate some foods that were off limits to me (soy, certain veggies, ice cream, chocolate, etc) if i do not eat them two days in a row, for whatever reason. i'm thinking histamines. whatever it is, i can eat many more/different foods. i usually eat the same sort of food/meal...
