  1. My daughter's pediatrician wanted to test her for celiac due to her short stature, her weight, vitamin deficiency, tooth decay, eczema, among other symptoms that she has had throughout her lifetime. She is 11 years old and weighs 50 lbs, and hasnt gained any weight in a year. She was gluten free for 2 years (after a wheat allergy was discovered). I put her back on gluten for 4 weeks prior to having the blood drawn. Lots of gluten daily. Her pediatrician said it may or may not be long enough to determine if she has celiac, but wanted to go ahead and test her. Here are her results. It appears to me that everything is normal. Should I retest her again after a few more weeks on gluten? Or does this test tell us that she does not have celiac?
