Hi!  

I would be happy to give my non-medical opinion.

These are just two of the celiac antibodies (blood tests) that are most often given.  She did get a slight positive.  That means your doctor should refer her to a GI.  The blood test ps alone do not diagnose celiac disease except in cases where the results are extremely elevated.  I would suggest asking for the rest of the celiac panel: DGP and EMA tests for further clarification.     Your doctor should order also a Immunoglobulin A [IgA deficiency test).  If IgA deficient, it could explain the negative TTG IgA result.

Please make sure she is consuming gluten daily.  All celiac testing will not work on a gluten free diet.
