Welcome!  

It looks like your daughter is on her way to a celiac diagnosis.  Everyone is different, but I think you will have to wait until the biopsies come back from the Pathologist.  My endoscopy looked fine visually, yet my biopsies revealed intestinal damage (the villi are microscopic!)  The important thing at this point is that she must still be eating gluten daily for the endoscopy.  Once you get a diagnosis (sometimes labs lose stuff), then she can go gluten free.  Both an elevated TTG and EMA leans strongly to a celiac diagnosis and not something else.

I would advise reading some books at your local library about celiac disease and read about it online too.  Read through the forum postings as they contain great tips.  We are here to help you with your questions.
