  1. I asked for the lab reports and this is what I got copies of. So, on nr 5, do the levels indicate anything one way or another?? I am guessing she can't be tested for celiac again right now because she's been gluten-free for 2 weeks? O.K., nr 6 is just the blood cells, do you know what the ones are that are high and low and what they'd mean? I just don't know what to do. Rachael
  2. I just edited my post, I had a typo. She isn't having any more joint pain being on a gluten-free diet!!
  3. A little history, dd was having knee/joint pains, terrible behavior and was sleepy all of the time. I had some bloodwork done back in May '07 and was told she had Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. I wasn't convinced that was the problem and had more tests run last month. I was told her celiac test came back high and ferratin was low. Doc said to give her a multivitamin and she'd be fine. She has been gluten-free as of 9/7 and her behavior has made a complete turn around and NO complaints of joint pain:) I don't know if she has celiac or just an intolerence to wheat/gluten.
