In brief: There is a very

characteristic skin rash that accompanies celiac disease: dermatitis herpetiformis.
Typically this is a skin manifestation of non-celiac wheat sensitivity. Extremely itchy bumps or blisters appear, especially on the forearms.The lab abnormalities you describe are not typical for celiac; in fact serum globulins may be low. I suspect more than one diagnosis; continue working closely with her Doctor

Itching that only occurs or is worse at night time should prompt consideration of scabies.
