Welcome!  

You do have a positive.  That means that you should receive a referral to a Gastroentrologist who can perform more tests,  including an endoscopy.  During the endoscopy the GI will look for damage and obtain biopsies.  A  pathologist will determine if their is villi damage which is microscopic.  Here is more information:

i hope your daughter feels better soon!

Make sure she keeps eating gluten (only a saltine or two or a single slice of bread per day) until the endoscopy is finished.

She should eat some gluten every day before the endoscopy.  The usual advice is to eat gluten for at least 2 weeks before the endoscopy, and 12 weeks before a blood antibody test.

    Apart from a couple of mistakes I’ve been gluten free for a month now.  I still have issues with digestion.  Pain in my abdomen (like there is a blockage ) if I eat a big meal.  Small meals are fine, and I still get excessive wind and nause...
