In brief: Only at risk

Just because one has a genetic predisposition does not mean that one will get the disease.
Even identical twins are likely to get the same diseases only about 50% of the time. However this should alert your daughter to consider celiac disease as a potential issue when and if she develops symptoms suggestive of this condition.
