You bet!  I am biopsy confirmed and tested positive ONLY to the DGP IgA.  Even in follow-up testing, my DGP IgA is the only positive on the entire panel.  There is a reason that there are a few different celiac antibodies tests.  They are all good, but are not perfect.  It is one reason why the vast amount of celiac researchers still believe that biopsies are needed for a firm diagnosis.  But, not everyone can afford them or the wait times can be long (e.g. NHS or Canada).  Your child's result is not crazy high.  I would seriously talk to a GI about a biopsy.  It can be a great benchmark for future issues.  Search the forum and you will find plenty of parents who were happy to get the biopsy.  

Why is this a rare result?  No one knows.  I have searched and from what I can find is that usually very small children (under two) and elderly people can test this way.  I am old, but not elderly!  Sometimes, my result makes me question my diagnosis, but my biopsies and my reaction to the gluten-free diet support it (anemia resolved).  

I wish her well.  Although celiac disease may be hard to "digest", you can help your child feel better and prevent complications (like osteoporosis).  

Hugs!

    It’s so awful isn’t it. Do you ever get dizziness and a numb face? Mines just awful atm and I constantly think oh it must be something more serious   It’s so awful isn’t it. Do you ever get dizziness and a numb face? Mines just awful atm and Iconstantly think oh it must besomething more serious  
    Vomiting, passing out, abdominal pain that occurs as soon as my stomach empties into the small intestine (I consume mushy, well-cooked foods then), hives, allergic reactions are way more severe, indigestion, anxiety, irrtability, fatigue, achy body, tingling, become lactose intolerant, constipation, diarrhea.  Yep, many things.  Symptoms can change too.  Celiac disease is like a chameleon.  Symptoms for me can last for about six months.  Most severe the first week and gradually getting better.  
What symptoms do you get?
