In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
pathology is initially identified with the characteristic flat lesion of untreated Celiac Sprue. Thereafter, bands of eosinophilic hyaline material within the lamina propria become increasingly apparent. As the disease progresses, the mucosa becomes progressively thinner. Therapy, including the gluten-free diet, does not help. Some cases currently designated refractory or unclassified Sprue many prove to be Collagenous Sprue.
As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).
