Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The description provided indicates that your daughter might be having carditis, associated with rheumatic fever which can present with some of the symptoms and lab findings that your daughter has.

This is a form of immunological disorder that results in inflammation of the heart and renal tissues producing various signs and symptoms.

You might consult your doctors who might provide you the proper diagnosis and advice.
