My daughter was diagnosed today. First question, are there ever any false positives with this? Before we go gluten free, I just wanted to hold on to a little bit of hope.
Also, do any of your get a sore throat and headaches with your celiac's? She seems to get that a lot and I really need to find out if it is from the celiac's or something else. Thank you.

Yes, there can be false positives, but those are not common. The next step is usually biopsies via endoscopy to confirm intestinal damage. I encourage you to check out the University of Chicago's celiac website. They are a reputable site and a leading researcher in the US. There are about 300 symtoms of celiac disease and some are asymptomatic. Good luck!
