High Folate & High B12 in Daughter

My daughter, 8 years old, has been irritable and tired. She also has been more pale than normal. She has small red blood cells, but this is not unusual for her. In the past her iron stores has been low. But not now.

So I took her into our doctor and they ran full blood tests. Iron stores was low but in normal range. Ferritin was low but normal. Her red blood cell size was small, but normal. But, high B12 and high folate. Thyroid was normal. She is not on any supplements.

So, what does high folate and b12 mean? She was previously diagnosed, about 2 years ago, with lactose intolerance. It was so bad, that she had constant bloating and diarrhea. Plus, they looked at her colon and it had ulcers on it and indicative of allergies.

So could she have Celiac disease?
